11:00 - 12:00, Friday, April 27, 2012 Powerpoint from session: **Introductions****Let's Do Some Math!****Scenario Only**- View graphs
- What do you notice? What do you wonder?
**Java Applet**- Runner Simulation Tool from NCTM's Standards & Focal Points:
*5.2 Understanding Distance, Speed, and Time Relationships Using Simulation Software* **Present the Problem**- tPoW: Runners
**Let's Reflect**- How might we help students develop their Mathematical Practices? How might we:
- develop questioning techniques that use students' responses to help inform the next steps of classroom instruction?
- maximize each student's "talk time" by using pairs and groups and targeted tasks?
- make the most of student accountability by encouraging students to engage in viable arguments and discuss their reasoning with others?
