Coherence Map: A Tool for Mathematical Success

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Participants will deepen their understanding of the CCSS instructional shifts while engaging with a free digital tool (Student Achievement Partners: Coherence Map) that helps aid in planning lessons and units with mathematical coherence. The tool enhances planning scaffolded learning opportunities that support students who are behind as well as advancing; by identifying gaps in a student’s knowledge as a standard is traced back through its logical prerequisites and by creating challenging learning experiences for students who are ready for more.

The session will be illustrated in the content of Ratios and Proportional Relationships as a visual is provided for participants to connect major work and supporting work within a grade, allowing maximization of instructional time. There will be time for session attendees to explore and plan individually or collaboratively with additional grade specific domains, clusters or standards on their laptops and tablets. In the end, participants will gain an understanding that students possess a knowledge of math at deeper levels and can achieve at higher levels when they learn math concepts with coherence-building their understanding by linking together concepts within and across grades.
