This session is focused on 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. You'll be given information to categorize their respecting grade level standards, and have the opportunity to sort and discuss mathematical standards to determine if the goal of the standard is conceptual, procedural fluency or application.

Within provided standards, you'll also investigate rigor in terms of tasks, working in groups to modify tasks to increase and decrease the difficulty and complexity to meet the needs of their students.

  • MATH STANDARDS & PRACTICES We will use our knowledge of rigor in order to explore the intent of the Common Core State Standards, exploring a range of standards.
  • WHAT WILL ATTENDEES GAIN? Attendees will practice sorting Common Core State Standards by conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and application.
  • BEYOND "STAND & DELIVER" The attendees will gain hands-on experience by sorting standards by the aspects of rigor.
