Igniting Mathematical Minds: Rigorous Questioning Using the Icons of Depth and Complexity

Friday, November 10
9:15 AM - 10:15 AM
Location: 211 B

In this session, participants learn instructional strategies to develop rigorous math questions. We evaluate questions and explore ways Sandra Kaplan's Icons of Depth and Complexity can increase the rigor. Participants collaborate to create rigorous math questions using the Icons of Depth and Complexity. When used intentionally in the classroom, these strategies encourage student discourse, provide challenge, extend thinking, and provide a platform for students to take an academic risk while having their unique needs met. Resources shared during this session can be immediately utilized as tools for professional development, collaborative planning, and classroom instruction.
