13 th Annual Academic Success Institute Presented by Kirsten Sarginger Mathematics Coordinator 1 Academic Discourse in the Mathematics Classroom March 14, 2015

2
Mathematics Discourse Outcomes Participants will deepen their understanding of mathematical discourse and how it supports student learning Participants will experience Number Talks and learn how they support all students, including EL students, given the increased language demands of the CCSS-M Participants will see the connection between the CCSS-M and the ELD Standards using an integrated approach with reference to the dedicated ELD block 2

3
Mathematics Discourse Agenda CCSS-M and ELD Standards Integration Academic Discourse: Number Talks Implications for implementation of mathematics discourse 3

4
Mathematics Discourse Common Core State Standards As the CA CCSS-M are implemented, students will face increased language demands during mathematics instruction. Students will be asked to engage in discussions on mathematics topics, to explain their reasoning, to demonstrate their understanding, and to listen to and critique the reasoning of others. The increased language demands may pose challenges for all students and even greater challenges for English learners. -CA Mathematics Framework Universal Access Chapter Page 9 4

5
Mathematics Discourse Common Core State Standards: Mathematical Practices 1.Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them 2.Reason abstractly and quantitatively 3.Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others 4.Model with mathematics 5.Use appropriate tools strategically 6.Attend to precision 7.Look for and make use of structure 8.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning 5

6
Mathematics Discourse Common Core State Standards Content Standards: 2.NBT.9 Explain why addition and subtraction strategies work, using place value and the properties of operations. A.REI.1 Explain each step in solving a simple equation. 6

ELD Standards Part I: Interacting in Meaningful Ways Provides grade level CA ELD Standards that set expectations for ELs to participate in meaningful, relevant, and intellectually challenging ways in various contexts and disciplines in three modes: A. Collaborative: engagement in dialogue with others B. Interpretive: comprehension and analysis of written and spoken texts C. Productive: creation of oral presentations and written texts -CA ELD Standards Overview Pages 16,19 9

Number Talks 10

11
Mathematics Discourse Number Talks A planned daily routine for whole ‐ class instruction Number Sense (e ﬃ ciency, accuracy & ﬂexibility) Generalized Arithmetic-conceptual understanding Reasoning and Problem Solving Mental Mathematics Preview-Review-Conceptual Understanding 11

12
Mathematics Discourse Number Talks and Time Number Talks (about 10 minutes) Mini-Lesson (10 to 20 minutes) Lesson (more than 20 minutes) 12

13
Mathematics Discourse Socio-mathematical Norms Errors are gifts, they promote discussion.. The answer is important, but it is not the math. 13

Mathematics Discourse True/False Sentence Frames I would like to defend_________________. I believe it is ___true/false______ because________________. 26

27
Mathematics Discourse True/False 7 = 4 + 3 True or False? Why? 27

28
Mathematics Discourse True/False 15 x 24 = 30 x 12 True or False? Why? 28

29
Mathematics Discourse Questions Teachers Might Ask Share your thinking with your partner. How did you solve it differently? Who else used this strategy to solve the problem? How did you figure it out? 29

30
Mathematics Discourse Questions Teachers Might Ask Share the steps you took to solve the problem. What information was helpful? Explain why you took those steps? Tell me more. What strategies are being used? 30

32
Mathematics Discourse Evidence Based Practices recommended for engaging upper elementary and older students in high quality discussions Carefully prepare for the discussions Ask follow up questions Provide a task or a discussion format Develop and practice the use of specific “discussion protocols” -ELA/ELD Framework Chapter 5, Page 26 32

33
Mathematics Discourse How To Support ELs ∙Provide protocols for effective discussions ∙Ensure equity in participation ∙Provide a positive learning environment that encourages all voices to be heard ∙Promote the acceptance of diverse view points - ELA/ELD Framework Chapter 5, Page 26 33

34
Mathematics Discourse Table Talk Have you implemented Number Talks as part of your daily routine? What were some of the benefits and challenges? When in your daily routine could you incorporate the use of Number Talks? 34

35
Mathematics Discourse What would this look like in a designated ELD block? 35

36
Mathematics Discourse Academic Language To support students’ ability to express their understanding of mathematics, teachers need to explicitly teach not only the language of mathematics but also academic language for argumentation (proof, theory, evidence, in conclusion, therefore), sequencing (furthemore, additionally), and relationships (compare, contrast, inverse, opposite). - Math Framework Universal Access Page 10 36

37
Mathematics Discourse Learning About How English Works Mathematics text is informational text that requires different skills than narrative texts. Students may... – Need specific instruction on how to read and comprehend mathematics texts (text, diagrams, tables, symbols) which may not necessarily be read from left to right – Instruction in writing informational/explanatory text which requires facility with the symbols of mathematics and graphic representations in addition to understanding of mathematical content and concepts - Math Framework Universal Access Page 10 37

38
Mathematics Discourse Factors To Consider for Success Syntactic features of word problems – The arrangement of words in a sentence (phrases, clauses, sentences) Text analysis – Word problems are challenging because they require reading and comprehension of the text, identifying the question, creating a numerical expression, and solving that equation 38
