Professional Development Modules designed to support 21st Century Mathematics Teaching: 1) Formative Assessment, 2) Concept Development Lessons, 3) Problem Solving Lessons, 4) Improving Learning Through Questioning, and 5) Students Working Collaboratively
This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to: 1) Make sense of a real life situation and decide what math to apply to the problem. 2) Understand and calculate the conditional probability of an event A, given an event B, and interpret the answer in terms of a model. 3) Represent events as a subset of a sample space using tables, tree diagrams, and Venn diagrams. 4) Interpret the results and communicate their reasoning clearly.
Designed to help teachers and students monitor their progress, these tests provide a model for examinations that may replace or complement current US tests.
In Prague some sidewalks are made of small square blocks of stone. The blocks are in different shades to make patterns that are in various sizes. In this task, you will look for rules which let you work out how many blocks of different colors are needed to make different sized patterns.
This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to identify and use geometrical knowledge to solve a problem. In particular, this unit aims to identify and help students who have difficulty in: 1) Making a mathematical model of a geometrical situation. 2) Drawing diagrams to help with solving a problem. 3) Identifying similar triangles and using their properties to solve problems. 4) Tracking and reviewing strategic decisions when problem-solving.
