Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching High School : The Tqe Process Guide High School Students Need
about this item
Making Sense of Mathematics for Teaching High School utilizes video, group discussion, and activities to help teachers engage in mathematics as both learners and instructors. The workshop explores meaningful tasks for learners/teachers of mathematics; examines the task, question, and evidence (TQE) process; and provides a shared vision of classrooms where teachers and students are engaged in meaningful mathematics learning experiences. Explore how high school students understand the connection between algebraic and graphic representations of the steps of solving an equation. This resource also addresses reasoning and modeling.
View high-quality footage demonstrating classroom mathematics instruction.
- Explore best practices in mathematics instruction at the appropriate grade level.
- Learn the foundations for connecting prior knowledge to new learning, including: (1) selecting, adapting, or creating worthwhile tasks to address a specific learning goal in mathematics; (2) using targeted and appropriate questioning strategies to support all mathematics learners; and (3) collecting evidence of students’ conceptual understanding and misconceptions related to the learning goals of mathematics.
