  9. My goal is to help students make sense of mathematics and learn that they can be mathematical thinkers.

  10. Old-Style Math vs. The Newand ImprovedStyle • Students work individually, with partners, in small groups or as a whole class. • Considers the child’s reasoning and thought process that leads to the answer! • Students working alone • Focused on getting the right answer

  11. Answers recorded by writing down numbers. • Complete as many problems as quickly as possible. • Encourages children to explain their thinking orally, in writing, and by using pictures, diagrams, and models. • Thoughtfully working on a small number of problems during a class session that incorporate a variety of concepts.

  12. Hands-on, active, engaging, fun • Use more than one strategy to solve a problem and double-check. • Tedious and the dreaded red pen • Use a single formula or algorithm to solve a problem.

  13. Use only pencil and paper. • Allows students to use cubes, blocks, tiles, and measuring tools to help them solve problems in ways that make sense to them.

  14. Social Studies • Geography/Map Skills • Citizenship and Government • Arizona History • Economics

  15. SCIENCE Scientific Process • Making Observations • Asking Questions • Creating Hypothesis • Collecting Data • Drawing Conclusions

  16. Scientific Units of Study • Animal Classification/Survival Adaptations • Properties of Water/Water Cycle • Weather/Climate • Electricity/Magnetism
