1 Mathematics Professional Development Day October 11, 2010 Making sense of CHANGE Math Life live it Relevance, Rigor and Change It’s the Math Life!

2 Average SAT Scores HCPS Virginia Nation

3 Relevance How do we make math relevant for our students? Real-world problems and discussions Open-ended questions Make it worthwhile! Student-centered SHARE IDEAS! Math Website Links – Delicious and Infographics

4 4 Slide Title

5 Oil leaked from April 20 – July 15, 2010. On July 15, the leak was stopped after releasing about 4.9 million barrels (7.8×10 5 m 3 ) of crude oil. It was estimated that 53,000 barrels per day (8,400 m 3 /d) were escaping from the well just before it was capped. It is believed that the daily flow rate diminished over time, starting at about 62,000 barrels per day (9,900 m 3 /d) and decreasing as the reservoir of hydrocarbons feeding the gusher was gradually depleted. The Deepwater Horizon was able to operate in waters up to 8,000 feet (2,400 m) deep and drill down to 30,000 feet (9,100 m). BP estimated the worst case flow at 162,000 barrels per day (25,800 m 3 /d). Internal BP documents estimated the flow could be as much as 100,000 barrels per day (16,000 m 3 /d).

6 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill What “I wonder…” questions about the mathematics would kids (or adults) ask? What jobs related to the spill involve pertinent mathematics? To which mathematics content could this disaster be connected?

15 Each figure in the pattern below is made of hexagons that measure 1 centimeter on each side. If the pattern of adding one hexagon to each figure is continued, what will be the perimeter of the 25th figure in the pattern? Show how you found your answer. NAEP Released Items – 2007 Grade 8 M7 #14 SCR Hard 29%

16 Perimeter Problem In what situation would this task be used? In which course/level would you use this task? How would you adjust it for another course/level?

17 Worthwhile task? Questions to ask yourself… Does the problem challenge students to use higher-level critical thinking skills? Is the problem clearly connected to the targeted mathematics? Are there multiple ways to solve this problem? Is it accessible to all students?

18 Worthwhile task? Questions to ask yourself… Does the problem promote mathematical communication? What might students struggle with? This would be an appropriate problem if you were studying… or if you have already studied…

21 Vision Goal #5 in the HCPS Strategic Plan All students will become responsible and effective users of technology. We will infuse the curriculum with technology to enhance the development of 21 st century skills. Dr. Russo’s message: We need to take the next step in effectively integrating technology into our instruction. What are the computer expectations?
