Mathematically Rich Tasks
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.
