Introduction to SMP Tasks

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

What are SMP tasks you ask? SMP stands for Standards of Mathematical Practices. These tasks provide a rich opportunity for students to engage with the current content of the unit through the lens of the Standards of Mathematical Practice.

How is an SMP different than an Essential Skills problem? A SMP task is not a single problem but rather a series of related problems that are leveled. Student choice is a central focus to allow exploration of deep mathematics which includes mathematics, research, and writing.

This session focuses on the structure of SMP tasks and an introduction on steps to create your own.
