Professional is someone with expertise in a specialized field anindividual who has not only pursued advanced training to enter thefield but who is also expected to remain current in its evolvingknowledge base Community is an environment that fosters mutual cooperation .

Professional Doing MathematicsTogether and Planning Mathematics Learning Team Doing Math and Planning Together1 Consider individually at least two ways to solve the problem Record your thinking strategies solution.

a Look for different ways to solve the task based on various mathematics ideas and or representations b Identify common errors students might make and the misunderstanding behind each error c Think about questions that you might ask students along the way 2 Share your solutions at your Learning Team 3 Order the Learning Team solutions to make a mathematical progression based on solutions using less.

sophisticated mathematical ideas to more sophisticated ideas Consider the range of where studentsmight be on the mathematics progression Information Packet page 8 Whole Group DebriefIn your tables discuss how doing the.

mathematics with a team and thinking aboutthe learning progression can help when planning the lesson facilitating the lesson and assessing students thinking discussions .

and work for misconceptions and forstrengths Learning Progressions Description of successively more sophisticated ways of thinking about a big idea Provide a framework for long term development.

Describe what it means to move towards more expert understanding in an area Gauge increasing competence over time A sequence of successively more complex ways of thinking about how an ideadevelops over time Consider how ideas build upon each other to form more complex practices or ideas.

fractions and decimals can be compared and ordered from least to greatest andgreatest to least 5 14 a sample space represents all possible outcomes of an experiment 6 1 A ratio is a comparison of any two quantities A ratio is used to represent relationshipswithin a set and between two sets.
