Course Description

Rigor Redefined in High School Mathematics is designed to provide monthly support for teachers in increasing rigor in instruction and to better prepare students for the Georgia Milestones End-of-Course Assessments, facilitated by Suwanda Coffey of West Georgia RESA. The overarching goal for this professional learning series is to effectively utilize the Standards for Mathematical Practice to lead planning, instruction, and assessment. The content focus will, primarily, be the standards for Coordinate Algebra, Analytic Geometry, Algebra I, and Geometry, the courses for 9th and 10th graders. Teachers for other grade levels are welcome as well. Activities will include (but are not limited to) analyzing and revising tasks, reviewing and writing assessment items, and videotaping and reviewing exemplar and participant lessons. All work in the series will be directly correlated to the ten TAPS standards of the TKES.

Participants will need to bring a laptop or tablet for these meetings.

Minimum Class Size: 10

Lunch will be provided.
