Going Deeper

on November 21, 2013

I’ve noticed that our 6th grade math teachers are going deeper with the math, which requires more time. Therefore, half of our students are still working on Topic 6, while a quarter of our students are learning through Topic 7, and the other quarter of our students are working on Topic 8.

Dig deeper into math concepts, beyond the computational skills

If your students are currently learning through Topic 8, I’d like to encourage you to try the Performance Task, some of the DOK ideas, or PBL ideas to go deeper. It might take a little longer than the Essential Map (pacing) that you created, but that’s okay because it will mean students are learning it on a deeper level.

What opportunities are you providing your students to deeply explore math concepts beyond the computational math skills?
