Beyond the Worksheet: Project Design in Math – May 3 Webinar
Open any math textbook today, and you will encounter page after page of worksheet-style problem sets. These have their uses, of course – but they do not provide the kinds of challenges that will truly exercise students’ creative capabilities, or encourage them to use math as a thinking tool throughout their lives. In this webinar we will see how to construct these challenges using the tools provided by the MLTI. We will review frameworks that can inform the design process, topical approaches that can provide a meaningful context for this work, and how to use the Common Core Standards to inform development. Throughout we will look at concrete exemplars that both illustrate the approach and can be put to work right away.
