Students Making Viable Arguments in Math: SMP 3 in Action

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Students Making Viable Arguments in Math: SMP 3 in Action

Presented by Steve Leinwand, Principal Research Analyst at the American Institutes for Research
Sponsored by Conceptua Math


If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Building Understanding in Mathematics community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.

This edWebinar is part one of our three-part series, Making Your Math Class a Model to Behold, which will address the steps you can take as a teacher to make your mathematics classroom as successful as possible for you and your students. It will focus on the research-based strategies around the Standards for Mathematical Practice. The series will specifically focus on the upper-elementary mathematics classroom, but will apply to all K-8 grade levels.

The 3rd Standard for Mathematical Practice asks students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Many regard this as the single most stimulating of the 8 SMP’s, but how can you ace it every day? This session focuses on the expectations for enacting SMP3. Mathematics expert Steve Leinwand provides simple yet practical guidelines and methods for every teacher, from the novice to the seasoned pro. He also will provide guidance for the math coach or principal on how to see that a teacher is making strides with this standard.

Educators are encouraged to share this recording with their principals and/or math coaches, as the content will help everyone to be on the same page.

This edWebinar is part of the Making Your Math Class a Model to Behold Series:
Students Making Viable Arguments in Math: SMP 3 in Action
Low-Entry, High-Exit Math Tasks that Keep Every Student Engaged
Formative Assessment with Mathematical Models
