Title: Barriers to Building on Student Mathematical Thinking

Abstract/Description: In our work with teachers we have identified barriers that inhibit them from productively implementing the teaching practice of building on student thinking.  We share examples of barriers and ways we have supported teachers to make progress toward overcoming them.

Title: A Framework for Thinking Through a Unit: Implications for Task, Instructional Practices and Student Outcomes

Abstract/Description: The Comprehensive Mathematics Instruction Framework developed by the BYU Public School Partnership informs teachers in making decisions regarding the selection and sequencing of tasks, in implementing instructional practices that intentionally align with the nature and purpose of tasks (e.g., level of cognitive demand), and in assessing expected student outcomes.  Classroom video and student work will be used to illustrate the Framework.

Title: Taking Trig to Task

Abstract/Description: The transition from the static perspective of right triangle trig ratios to the dynamic perspective of circular trig functions, and from measuring angles in degrees to measuring angels in radians, can generate roadblocks and misconceptions.  In this session we will examine a sequence of tasks that reveal, rather than obscure, trigonometric ideas.
