Practicing the Practices: Using Technology to Transition to the Common Core

Max Ray, Drexel Math Forum
Suzanne Alejandre, Drexel Math Forum

Session Description

As Pennsylvania has adopted the Common Core standards, one has wondered, ʺwhat's going to change?ʺ Now that both assessment consortiums have released their sample items, students are being asked to do an unprecedented amount of problem solving, working with technology, and communicating their thinking. Participants will work with sample items from PARCC and Smarter Balanced, as well as demonstrate online resources for supporting students to solve problems using technology, and communicate their thinking about those problems.
