1 Project TIME Transitions in Math Education TMP Summer Institute August 8, 2008 Christie Gilliland- Dean, GRCC Joyce Hammer- Co-Director, GRCC Kris Kissel- Instructor, GRCC Paul Muckerheide- Instructor, Hazen HS Laura Moore-Mueller-Director, GRCC Pam Reising- Instructor, GRCC Stacey Snyder- Instructor, Renton HS Robin Washam- Co-Director, PSESD

2 A Partnership Auburn School District Enumclaw School District Federal Way School District Kent School District Puyallup School District Renton School District Sumner School District Tahoma School District Green River Community College Seattle University University of Washington

3 OVERVIEW FOR TODAY A portal to the senior math course Development and content Instructor reactions Lessons learned Advisory-Night-in-a-Box

4 A PORTAL Game Theory is one of the senior course modules. Our intention is to give you a flavor of the course and is not intended to teach Game Theory.

5 Kris Brief Summary

6 Battle of New Guinea (Printed from COMAP)

7 Literacy Vocabulary Minimax Maximin Saddle point Nash Equilibrium Game matrix Payoff and much more! Literacy Strategies Cornell Notes Concept Map Frayer Model (four square)

8 CORNELLNOTESCORNELLNOTES

9 Literacy: Concept Map

10 Literacy: Frayer Model

11 AB Game: Mixed Strategy

12 Calculate the percentage each played A. Calculate the expected value of the game.

13 Mathematical Analysis Finding the optimal strategy Mathematics used: Probability Linear graphs Intersection point (systems) Use of technology

14 Student Work Group work Mathematical conversations Classroom discussion

15 Non-Zero Sum Games (Conflict Resolution) NUMB3RS: Dirty BombPrisoners Dilemma

16 Non-Zero Sum Games (Conflict Resolution) Footloose A game of chicken

17 Non-Zero Sum Games (Conflict Resolution) A Beautiful Mind NUMB3RS episode: The Art of Reckoning To C or Not to C Forgiveness Math

19 Implementation Videos Group work Active learning Literacy strategies Textbook / course materials CRMS content Direct instruction Technology: Calculators and Spreadsheets Current events

20 Senior Course Development Created by faculty from GRCC and partner school districts. Provides rigorous alternative to calculus track for high-school seniors.

21 Senior Course Development Investigate deep and interesting topics in mathematics while preserving and improving algebra competency. Rekindle the excitement and beauty of mathematics.

22 Pre-Development Issues 1 semester or 2 semester course Module based or stand alone course H.S minimum math requirements Competing AP math courses

23 Pre-Development Issues Available high school math teachers Time to meet Whats in a name? Discrete Math BAT Math Advanced Quantitative Reasoning College-Prep Math Applications in Mathematical Reasoning

24 Course Content Semester I Graph Theory Scheduling Linear Programming Voting Statistics and Probability Fair Division

25 Course Content Semester II Finance Geometry Modeling continuous functions: linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, and logistic Game Theory

26 Course Assessment Assess students at beginning and end of year with WAMAP. Administer student and teacher perception surveys Observe students progress post-senior year

27 Instructor Support Professional development: just-in-time Course materials and supplies Textbooks Calculators and sensor/motion probes Substitute cost assistance Consequences Engage in hands-on learning Establish a learning community

28 Lessons Learned in Creating a New Course Always expect material will require more time than intended for writing and editing The magnitude of the project was a surprise Administrative/counselor support Excitement for new material Democratic approach takes time but leads to a richer course Needed one decision maker eventually

29 Teacher Reflections Collaboration across and within sectors Interest and awareness by administrators and instructors in other disciplines Mathematical engagement of students

30 Lessons Learned Implementing this Course Always expect that teaching the material requires more time than intended Class preparation is critical Additional information for the instructor resource manual Teacher prep time and money Administrative support Need resource/content individual for help Pilot test materials need enough polish to engage and support instructors, but will need significant revision Assessment requires piloting: content and delivery

31 Communication across sectors: Summer Symposiums COMING SOON! Summer Symposium - August 25, 2008 Revised Math Standards Facilitated by Dr. Susan Hudson-Hull, UT Dana Center
