Grades 6-12: Rich Problems vs. Math Exercises

Type of PD: 3-Day Institute 
Institute Dates: 11/2/16, 12/14/16, 1/11/17
Location: M.S.167-Robert F. Wagner Middle School, 220 E 76th St, New York, NY 10021

Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades 6-12, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.


Rich tasks revolve around big ideas, have many entry points, are relevant, have a high cognitive demand. This institute will give educators in Grades 6-12 an opportunity to explore:

  • Their own problem solving habits of mind and an understanding of some of the big mathematical ideas across grades 6-12.
  • The difference between a typical math textbook problem and a genuine mathematical inquiry that requires students to think, reason, problem-solve, collaborate, and engage in mathematical discourse.
  • Rich tasks, by doing the math as learners and experiencing pedagogy that engages students.
  • Talk moves to encourage the use of the CCSS Mathematical Practices.
  • Student work analysis tools to track student learning.
  • Video examples of relevant lesson components.
  • Rich tasks that require students to think, reason, problem-solve, collaborate, and engage in mathematical discourse.

Participants will leave with:

  • A clear understanding of rich tasks and their role in a mathematics classroom.
  • Specific tasks they can try in their own classrooms.
  • Resources and guidelines for implementing required curricular materials using a “rich-task-lens.”
  • Specific strategies to select and adapt standard tasks into rich tasks.
