Decimals Hundredths Grid

Here are some great decimal grid activities by the Virgina Department of Education (see pages 44 – 52). I love decimal grids! Use them to teach adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals! Grids are great scaffolds for thinking.

Math Workstations: Component 4 (Academically Rigorous)

Posted on June 6, 2013. Filed under: Assessment, Common Core, Guided math, Math Workstations, RTI, Test prep | Tags: , , , , , , |


Math workstations should be academically rigorous.  One way, (a very important way I might add) is to use the DOK Framework.  If you are teaching the CCSSM, both assessment agencies (PARCC and Smarter Balance) are framing activities around this framework.  As the NYC website notes:

Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand “rigor,” or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks. Webb developed four DOK levels that grow in cognitive complexity and provide educators a lens on creating more cognitively engaging and challenging tasks.

Here are a few DOK resources:

I plan to do a whole series of posts on DOK soon.  In the meantime, just know that DOK is the framework used for rigor in the CCSS.  It is very important to consider this framework as you  look at units of study, individual lessons, workstations, guided math lessons and performance tasks.
