Mathematics MUST be taught in context, so it is not just a set of rules to be memorized and
soon forgotten. Mathematically Rich problems and asking good thinking questions help
students understand and master the concepts that are being presented. These skills are
also proven to increase the scores on standardized assessments like the SAT, ACT, and
ISTEP+ Math Assessments. We all learn by doing. Teachers will define and explore how
Mathematically Rich problems and asking good thinking questions bring an elevated level of
thinking and doing math for students. Teachers will work on Mathematically Rich problems
and be given resources to find and write their own Mathematically Rich problems and good
purposeful thinking questions.
Lunch will be on your own.
