Iowa Math Chats – Need to know 411

Iowa Math Chats are “need to know information.”  Think of this as the “meat and potatoes” bites of the meal.

Click below to watch the Iowa Math Chats – < 5 min videos where I share the “need to know” information to implement the standards.  This is a way to “knowledge transfer.”

Standards

First Shift: Focus – the structure and major work of the grade for college and career readiness.

  3. Coherence Map (Part 3) Navigation and Resources –  We look at resources and discover some new things. Coherence Map.
  4. Coherence Map (Part 4) Navigation and Resources –  We look at how we can identify gaps in student knowledge. Coherence Map.
