About the workshop

This workshops is recommended for MYP Maths teachers teaching in the context of the United States of America or with an interest in teaching in the USA.

In this workshop, you will discover how the MYP is ideally suited to implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for mathematics.

  • You will dissect the standards both for mathematical content and mathematical practice as you explore how elements of the MYP already deliver on the CCSS requirements.
  • You will investigate the types of assessments suggested by the CCSS for mathematics and supplied by both the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. You will then design your own assessments that satisfy the rigour and contextual learning necessitated by the CCSS for maths.
  • You will also explore how “inquiry” can be used to deepen understanding of concepts and how it can be effectively implemented in the maths classroom.
  • With a good understanding of, and practical experience with, contextual learning, authentic assessment tasks and inquiry-based instruction, you will develop MYP units of work that meet the needs of the CCSS for maths.
  • At the same time, you will have a forum for sharing of ideas and best practices with other educators, while also tackling common implementation issues.
