Implement Tasks that Promote Reasoning and Problem Solving.

Effective teaching of mathematics engages students in solving
and discussing tasks that promote mathematical reasoning and
problem solving and allow multiple entry points and varied
solution strategies.

What the standards say...

3rd Grade
Multiply one-digit whole numbers by multiples of 10 in the range 10-90
(e.g., 9 × 80, 5 × 60) using strategies based on place value and properties
of operations.
4th Grade
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number,
and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value
and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by
using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
5th Grade
Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.

Use and connect mathematical representations.
Effective teaching of mathematics engages students in
making connections among mathematical representations
to deepen understanding of mathematics concepts and
procedures and as tools for problem solving.

Number Talks

Number Talks are about students making sense of
their own mathematical ideas.

● There are many ways to see, or do, any problem.
● Everyone is responsible for communicating his or her
thinking clearly so that others can understand.
● Everyone is responsible for trying to understand other
people’s thinking.

Ambitious Teaching

In ambitious teaching, the teacher engages students in
challenging tasks and collaborative inquiry, and then observes
and listens as students work so that she or he can provide an
appropriate level of support to diverse learners. The goal is to
ensure that each and every student succeeds in doing
meaningful, high-quality work, not simply executing
procedures with speed and accuracy. (Smith, 4 pag.)

What the standards say...
2nd Grade
Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies
based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between
addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in
adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and
hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to
compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
3rd Grade
Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on
place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and
subtraction.
4th Grade
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
