Title:  Features of Mathematical Tasks That Can Support the Learning and Teaching of Mathematical Practices

Abstract:   In this seminar we will continue our discussion of math practices, what they are, and how we might establish their existence given an observation of a student's work or a classroom. The session will be an informal working seminar in which we collectively work to establish a meaningful working definition for one or two of the mathematical practices in the common core, and things we would expect to see illustrating them in student work and in classrooms.

Co-facilitated by Hyman Bass, UM School of Education and Department of Mathematics, and Yvonne Lai, UM School of Education.
