How are your seeing the Mathematical Practices in your classrooms? #ncctm18 #inspiremathculture #NCMathChat Questions to Consider: What are the benefits of using games during Math Workshop to support student learning?

How do you implement mathematics games during your instruction? What is your role in developing conceptual understanding and meaningful practice in your classrooms/schools? #ncctm18 @Math_Solutions @lamacgirl #inspiremathculture

#NCMathChat Connecting Research and Practice What is Math Workshop? An approach to teaching mathematics that places students at the center of math work. Main goal: to develop mindset that all students have the confidence to do math. Instructional approach designed to meet the

needs of all math learners.

Clue #1: of the tiles are red. Clue #2: of the tiles are blue. Clue #3: There is one green tile and one yellow tile. Clue #4: There are 12 tiles. Riddle #2 Clue #1:

of the tiles are red. Clue #2: The number of green tiles and blue tiles are the same. Clue #3: There are as many green tiles as red tiles. Clue #4: There are 10 tiles. Partner Task

Generate a riddle using no more than 20 tiles. Write your riddle on an index card. Use vocabulary relevant to your grade level. Exchanges your riddle with another pair and solve the riddle. Discuss any aspects of the riddle, as needed.

mathematics Teachers working with small groups and/or individual students Comparing Fractions Connect symbols with visual images Explore relationship between numerator and denominator Create models to build understanding

Comparing Fractions Draw a blank game board Roll die three times Individually decide where you want to place each number Compare with numbers and a model (ex. pictures, number line)

Comparing Fractions Play a round with a partner Include a drawing and/or a number line Comparing Fractions What conceptual understanding can students learn from this experience? How does this experience connect to content standards and mathematical practices?
