Annie's Experiment (19 September 2014)
Annie's sense-making experiment consists of three math questions from some Grade 3 benchmark tests; and three drawing questions, which start with content similar to that in the math questions, but instead ask students to "draw a picture of the story." Teachers have already shared some great comments on her blog; scroll down her post of Tuesday to join the conversation and freely download the questions.
Problems of the Week (22 August 2014)
The Problems of the Week (PoWs) have kicked off for the 2014-2015 academic year! We've recently changed some of the prompts and buttons that greet students as they submit their ideas online. In the words of one of our PoW teachers, this update "relays to students that we're committed to the idea-feedback-revision cycle that can help move student learning forward."
