 Designing and Implementing Mathematically
Rich Tasks for Grades 5-8
Sarah Radke, New York University

Target Audience: Math Teachers, 5-8

In this eSeminar, Sarah Radke, an Educational Researcher and Mathematics Content Coach will present a framework for designing and implementing problem-based learning (PBL) in a virtual setting. Sarah will spend the first portion of the eSeminar establishing the framework, developing a shared understanding of key terms, and sharing the challenges and opportunities afforded by the online structure for PBL.
The second portion of the eSeminar will be spent talking through a number of example cases of Rich Tasks. Together we will discuss the design and implementation of these tasks as well as their potential to develop deep conceptual understanding and encourage inquiry, persistence, and collaboration.    

Sarah Radke
is a Ph.D Candidate in Teaching and Learning and a Mathematics Content Coach with Metamorphosis TLCs. At New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture she serves as an adjunct faculty member, research mentor, and field supervisor for pre-service teachers. As a coach, teacher educator, and education researcher, Sarah is committed to developing new accounts of what might count as “learning mathematics" to support all students in learning mathematics and developing positive mathematical identities. Sarah works closely with upper elementary, middle, and high school mathematics teachers to plan, implement, and reflect on student-centered, mathematically rich lessons both in and outside of school settings. She believes deeply that teaching is a form of activism, and that learning and doing mathematics involves investigation, exploration, creativity, and importantly, the bravery and vulnerability to make mistakes.
