The Vision of the Common Core: Embracing the Challenge UCDMP Saturday Series 2013-2014 Middle School Session 2 November 2, 2013

Agenda Morning Session Introductions and a little math Assessment of learning vs. Assessment for learning Claim Three: Assessing students’ ability to Explain their reasoning, Construct viable arguments and Critique the reasoning of others. Afternoon Sessions Middle School: The use of games Planning for the CCSS-M High School: Technology Planning for the CCSS-M

Some Information Future Sessions: January 25, 2014 March 15, 2014 May 3, 2014 Teachers have the opportunity to purchase 2 CEU’s for attending 3 of the 5 Saturday sessions being offered, or 3 CEU’s for attending all 5 Saturday sessions being offered.

Using Games to Increase Mathematical Fluency and Deepen Conceptual Understanding. UCDMP Saturday Series 2013-2014 Middle School session 2 November 2, 2013

Let’s Play Tic Tac Toe Partner up and decide who is going to be “x” and who is going to be “0”. Begin playing Tic Tac Toe on your coordinate grid. Record your moves (ordered pairs) on your side of the paper. Play until you have a winner – “three in a row”. On a new coordinate grid, record only the 3 winning moves, and the corresponding ordered pairs. Group Sort and Discussion

Let’s Play Tic Tac Toe What, if anything, does the “game” element bring to this activity? What Mathematical concepts were present? Would this game work better to increase fluency or deepen understanding? Explain your reasoning.

“Got Your Number” POM In your group, starting with level A, work through as many levels of “Got Your Number” as time allows. “Got Your Number” is a Problem Of The Month, created by SVMI.

“Got Your Number” POM What, if anything, does the “game” element bring to this activity? What Mathematical concepts were present? Would this game work better to increase fluency or deepen understanding? Explain your reasoning.

Paper Clip Game Work with a partner to complete at least one round of the paper clip game. Taken from Bill Lombard and Brad Fulton’s book: Simply Great Math Games.

Paper Clip Game What, if anything, does the “game” element bring to this activity? What Mathematical concepts were present? Would this game work better to increase fluency or deepen understanding? Explain your reasoning.

Cards and Dice Integer War, and various adaptions. Dice Fractions, and various adaptions.

Cards and Dice What, if anything, does the “game” element bring to this activity? What Mathematical concepts were present? Would this game work better to increase fluency or deepen understanding? Explain your reasoning.

Matching Games “Memory” Style Multiple Representations

Matching Games What, if anything, does the “game” element bring to this activity? What Mathematical concepts were present? Would this game work better to increase fluency or deepen understanding? Explain your reasoning.

Get into a group based upon the concept, or grade level. Plan a lesson/activity, that you can use in the next few weeks, that incorporates a game to increase fluency and/or deepen understanding. Share out your lesson/activity. Next session we will have you report out on your successes. Using Games to Increase Mathematical Fluency and Deepen Understanding.
