703: Equally Important as Real World: Proof and Reason
A lot of emphasis has been placed on mathematical modeling in the last few years. Explanation of mathematical reasoning is an equally important activity in mathematics and students should grow in their ability to explain their reasoning over their years in school. In this talk we investigate different ways to elicit mathematical reasoning from students at various grade levels and the standards for what constitutes a full explanation of reasoning at various grade bands on the Smarter Balanced exam.
