  1. Mentoring Mathematical Minds Adapted By: Lynda Hall & Kathleen Maloney

  2. If math were a food, it would be….

  3. Project M3 • 5 year research grant • 11 schools in Connecticut • Grades 3-5 • Students identified with math talent potential

  4. Math Student Profile The student …. • is eager to solve challenging math problems • organizes date and information to discover math patterns • enjoys challenging math puzzles, games, and logic problems • understands new concepts easily • has a creative (unusual/divergent) way of solving math problems • Displays strong number sense • Looks at the world from a mathematical perspective (notices spatial relationships, finds math patterns that aren’t obvious, curious about quantitative information) • Regularly uses a variety of representations to explain math concepts (written explanations, pictoral, graphic)

  5. Unit Samples • 4 units per grade level • Based on NCTM standards • Number Sense • Data Analysis • Geometry and Measurement • Algebraic Thinking

  6. Rights You have the right to ask questions. You have the right to make a contribution to an attentive, respectful audience. You have the right to be treated respectfully. You have the right to have your ideas discussed, not you. Obligations You are obligated to speak loudly enough for others to hear. You are obligated to listen to others in order to understand. You are obligated to agree or disagree with the speaker’s comments and explain why. Verbal Discussions

  7. Math Journals • “Think Deeply Questions” • Students explain mathematics • Students create new mathematics • Students write thoughts and questions of their own

  8. Teachers New ways to teach New understanding of mathematics Greatly increased expectations for students Students Motivated and enjoying mathematics Progress to Date

  10. How would you measure a fried egg?

  11. The Himalayan Expedition The Search for the Yeti…..

  12. 101-102=1 **Move one digit and create a true statement** 1- You may not change any operations or signs of operation. 2- The true statement will be a correct math equation. 3- You may not change the digit to another one. The key word is move.
