Using Tasks in High School Mathematics

Professional Growth Opportunities

Using tasks in a high school mathematics classroom can provide rich opportunities for differentiated learning and authentic assessment.  How do we choose tasks that meet both curricular outcomes and student needs? Tasks allow students to enter mathematics where they are at and extend their learning. In this workshop we will look at a variety of resources for finding good high school tasks. We will also reflect and discuss what planning and teaching moves can assist in maximizing student learning through mathematics tasks.

Participants will:

  • Develop criteria for good tasks.
  • Explore how using tasks in your teaching practice can support student learning.
  • Explore the different purposes of tasks: instruction, differentiation and assessment, and how they fit into your current practice and instruction.

Audience: Grades 10-12 educators
