PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week

"Sometimes in a problem like this, where there aren't calculations to show, you might not be sure what you should include. To give you some ideas, I've included nine student solutions below. Let's take a look at them...."
- Annie, commenting on the FunPoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"I used to give out 'math bucks' with my picture on them for extra credit, but a black market and eventually forgery occurred."

Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers

http://www.parcconline.org/K12-educators

In anticipation of the Common Core State Standards, the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) seeks math teachers to

  • provide feedback on content frameworks
  • provide feedback on sample instructional units
  • pilot sample instructional units
  • pilot sample additional assessment tasks
  • participate in leadership cadres

PARCC is a 25-state consortium developing a common set of K-12 assessments in math and English "anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers." These new K-12 assessments will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students' progress toward this goal from 3rd grade up, and give teachers timely instructional support.
