Our session will be defining the concept of rigor and how it affects the mathematics classroom. We will explore the three components of rigor; conceptual understanding, procedural fluency and application. Attendees will be given information to categorize their respecting grade level standards. They will sort and discuss mathematical standards to determine if the goal of the standard is conceptual, procedural fluency or application.
Within provided standards attendees will investigate rigor in terms of tasks. In groups, attendees will modify tasks to increase and decrease the difficulty and complexity to meet the needs of their students.
