8:30am CDT

Harnessing the Power of the Purposeful Task (3-Act Tasks)
In this session, we’ll explore the power of problem-based lessons and how they can be used as a formative assessment tool. In specific, we’ll look at the structure of 3-Act Math Tasks and how they can be used to support conceptual understanding and application of mathematical ideas. By working through multiple tasks, we’ll identify some purposeful moves that can take place throughout a lesson and how you can implement these tasks in your classroom. (Grades K-6)

Number Sense and Reasoning Routines (Grades K-5)
Do your students struggle with reasoning about numbers and quantity, addition and subtraction, decomposition or even counting principles? Are you looking for practical, high-quality tasks to engage students and ignite discussion? In this session, participants learn about dynamic, doable activities that engage students in meaningful ways. A collection of ready-for-use resources will be provided and explored so that pursuit of number sense becomes a daily routine. These resources naturally complement each and every lesson in any mathematics class. Classroom clips of colleagues leveraging these strategies will also be shared.

Schema-Based Problem Solving Models with Elementary Mathematics
Many students with academic difficulties struggle with word problem solving. Word problem solving requires reading, analysis, and computation. While keywords are popular, they are minimally effective. An empirically-validated approach is schema-based instruction (SBI). The focus of this session is to share SBI techniques and model the process using basic operations.
