• Purpose

Engage in strategies that support all learners in a standards-based co-taughtclassroom

Explore mathematical tasks involving rate, ratio, and proportional reasoning

Provide resources for mathematical task involving equivalent expressions andradical and integer exponents.

Use and evaluate instructional models, e.g. scaffolding, differentiation,concrete-pictorial-abstract, etc.

• Six Co-Teaching Approaches

Large Group (T T T)1 Teach/ 1 Observe 1 Teach/ 1 Assist Team Teaching

Smaller Group (SPA)

Station Parallel Alternative Teaching

(A + 6)(3-1) =16A=1/2bh

How?

(A + 6) (3-1) = 16A=1/2 bh

• Standards forMathematics Practice

• Engage Learning Vocabulary Strategies

Four Groups Two groups develop interactive ways to teach

vocabulary associated with proportional reasoning (forexample, ratio, scale factor, proportion)

Two groups

One will develop synonym triplets (couple of words)act it out

The other will develop a taxonomy

• Accessibility Strategies

Spatial Reasoning Memory Attention

• Mathematical Task How strong is agummy worm?

Two approaches for learningImplicit InstructionExplicit Instruction

• Summarizer

What pre-requisites would be needed for this task?

How were the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMPs) addressed in thistask?

What key vocabulary was emphasized in this task?

How could you further differentiate this task using processing deficitsstrategies?

• Other Mathematical Tasks

Equivalent expressions Equal as Balanced Variables and expressions

Radical and integer exponents http://www.mathsisfun.com/square-root.html ..\links to presentation\cube-roots exponents.docx
