Planning for Experiential Math

Planning for learning math experientially is especially important for reaching the students who we aren’t currently successful with:

 
So we turn to experiences to help create the conditions for student motivation and provide a reason for learning the math:
Some of our planning will come from thinking about the Instructional Model and about creating an Experience:
  • Context
  • Experience (including role for the student, compelling scenario, and the thing they need to do- the task)
  • How to manage the process and the students through the process
  • What will be the final product, the demonstration of learning?
 
And some of our planning will come from thinking about the Instructional Model and the Math Standards:
  • The math learning targets
  • How to build foundational knowledge (just in time, not just in case)
  • How to practice and deepen understanding
  • Formative feedback
  • Summative feedback
