Ms. Nguyen is a real estate agent. One of her clients is considering buying a house in the Silver Lakes area, where 6 houses have recently sold for the following amounts: $160,000; $150,000; $185,000; $180,000; $145,000; $190,000. What should Ms. Nguyen report as the Median price of these houses? 1)$160,000 2)$170,000 3)$180,000 4)$190,000 5)Not enough information is given. Then GED ® test Note: Method for determining median was provided in the test booklet. 17 At your table: 1. Solve both problems 2. Discuss the similarities/differences between the two problems 3. How is the GED 2014 problem more complex? 4. What will we have to do in our classrooms to prepare students to solve the GED 2014 problem?

Standards for Mathematical Practice Discuss: How can you incorporate these standards in your classroom? Which ones seem hardest/easiest for students to do?
How Did This Instructor Use Questions? What Did He Mean By, “Sometimes the Best Thing I Can Do is Walk Away? How Did He Use Disagreements? https://www.cuny.edu/academics/programs/notable/CATA/cti- cunystart/cunystart-resources-pubs/videos.html
What does this mean/How did you get this? Why did you decide to.... ? Is there another idea you might try? Do you have any ideas about how you might figure out? Others?
Tavares bought 2 things on sale. One item was 10% off and the other item was 20% off. He says he saved 15% altogether. Could Tavares be right? Explain Could Tavares be wrong? Explain

Two painters can paint 2 rooms in 2 hours. If 12 rooms have to be painted in 6 hours, how many painters do you need?
RoomsWork Hours Painters = P 6 Hours * P = 24 Work Hours 6P = 24 P = 4
How Common Core Friendly is the Lesson Plan You Created for Homework? Does it Focus Where the Standards Focus? Do Students Use the Standards of Mathematical Practice? Does it Encourage Deep Understanding? Are Students Processors or Just Receptors of Information?
