Mathema
cs in the Elementary School
Last
 
Thursday
 
as
 
part
 
of 
 
our
 
faculty
 
professional
 
learning
 
day,
 
we
 
spent
 
a
 
period
 
of 
 
me
 
looking
 
at
 
our
 
mathema
cs
 
curriculum
 
and
 
in
 
par
cular
 
how
 
we
 
design
 
rich
 
mathema
cal
 
tasks
 
aligned
 
with
 
our
 
standards
 
and
 
indicators.
 
This
 
has
 
followed
 
on
 
from
 
a
 
period
 
of 
 
work
 
over
 
two
 
years
 
where
 
we
 
have
 
reviewed
 
our
 
mathema
cal
 
standards
 
and
 
indicators
 
and
 
aligned
 
what
 
we
 
use
 
with
 
interna
onal
 
benchmarks.
 
These
 
benchmarks,
 
describing
 
the
 
learning
 
outcomes
 
for
 
each
 
grade
 
level,
 
support
 
teachers
 
in
 
maintaining
 
the
 
rigor
 
within
 
our
 
math
 
program,
 
whilst
 
s
ll
 
honoring
 
our
 
pedagogy
 
of 
 
inquiry
 
based
 
learning.
 
We
 
do
 
not
 
have
 
grade
 
level
 
math
 
textbooks,
 
as
 
this
 
would
 
necessarily
 
imply
 
that
 
every
 
student
 
is
 
at
 
the
 
same
 
level
 
at
 
the
 
same
 
me.
 
Instead
 
we
 
have
 
units
 
of 
 
work,
 
linked
 
to
 
grade
 
level
 
indicators
 
framed
 
around
 
big
 
mathema
cal
 
ideas
 
or
 
concepts.
 
These
 
units
 
then
 
u
lize
 
a
 
variety
 
of 
 
resources
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
target
 
the
 
iden
ed
 
Math
 
concepts.
 
Students
 
work
 
at
 
a
 
level
 
appropriate
 
to
 
where
 
their
 
current
 
level
 
of 
 
understanding
 
is.
 
Some
 
students
 
will,
 
at
 
mes,
 
go
 
deeper
 
into
 
a
 
concept,
 
 just
 
as
 
some
 
students
 
may
 
explore
 
deeper
 
nuances
 
of 
 
wri
ng,
 
or
 
reading
 
depending
 
upon
 
their
 
level
 
of 
 
readiness.
 
Running
 
parallel
 
to
 
our
 
iden
ed
 
math
 
concepts
 
and
 
content,
 
are
 
a
 
set
 
of 
 
mathema
cal
 
‘prac
ces’
 
which
 
we
 
want
 
all
 
our
 
students
 
to
 
develop.
 
These
 
provide
 
the
 
‘how
 
I
 
learn
 
Math’,
 
alongside
 
the
 
‘what
 
am
 
I
 
learning
 
in
 
Math’.
 
These
 
prac
ces
 
are
 
:
 
1.Make
 
sense
 
of 
 
problems
 
and
 
persevere
 
in
 
solving
 
them.
 
2.Reason
 
abstractly
 
and
 
quan
ta
vely.
 
3.Construct
 
viable
 
arguments
 
and
 
cri
que
 
the
 
reasoning
 
of 
 
others.
 
4.Model
 
with
 
mathema
cs.
 
5.Use
 
appropriate
 
tools
 
strategically.
 
6.A
end
 
to
 
precision.
 
7.Look
 
for
 
and
 
make
 
use
 
of 
 
structure.
 
8.Look
 
for
 
and
 
express
 
regularity
 
in
 
repeated
 
reasoning.

Once
 
again
 
we
 
are
 
fortunate
 
to
 
being
 
working
 
with
 
an
 
interna
onal
 
mathema
cs
 
consultant
 
in
 
January
 
2015,
 
who
 
will
 
con
nue
 
to
 
work
 
with
 
our
 
teachers
 
on
 
developing
 
mathema
cally
 
rich
 
tasks.
 
Rich
 
mathema
cal
 
tasks
 
involve
 
those
 
which
 
can
 
a
est
 
to
 
the
 
following
 
three
 
criteria:
 
1.
 
The
 
mathema
cs
 
provides
 
the
 
challenge,
 
not
 
the
 
language
 
2.
 
The
 
task
 
must
 
be
 
accessible
 
to
 
the
 
learner,
 
based
 
upon
 
what
 
their
 
current
 
level
 
of 
 
understanding
 
is.
 
This
 
includes
 
giving
 
the
 
task
 
an
 
authen
c
 
context
 
which
 
students
 
can
 
naturally
 
connect
 
to.
 
3.
 
The
 
task
 
must
 
require
 
 jus
ca
on
 
and
 
explana
on
 
of 
 
the
 
answer
 
and
 
the
 
reasoning
 
behind
 
it.
 
By
 
now
 
you
 
will
 
have
 
received
 
(Kindergarten
 
to
 
Grade
 
4)
 
a
 
speci
c
 
le
er
 
from
 
your
 
class
 
teacher,
 
detailing
 
an
 
overview
 
of 
 
your
 
child’s
 
rst
 
mathema
cs
 
unit.
 
Hopefully
 
this
 
will
 
give
 
you
 
some
 
further
 
context.
 
We
 
look
 
forward
 
to
 
con
nuing
 
this
 
conversa
