Now that we are in our second year of Investigations, we are looking at materials to complement the various units. With the help of our Newport colleagues, we are identifying books to purchase that will help us select supplemental materials. The math consultant from Westerly is working with individual grade levels to choose common assessments. On the professional day last week, our entire day was devoted to problem solving and differentiation. We have purchased a program titled Exemplars that will help us embed problem solving tasks into Investigations. Grade levels will work together to identify tasks to use at the end of each unit. These may be in addition to the lessons in each unit or they may replace an activity that is similar. All teachers are hard at work, making the mathematics program at NES the best it can be.
