  • Mathematical Literacy: Looking at Literacy as a Mathematical SkillLITERACY NIGHTOCTOBER 15TH, 2015MR. HESSERT AND MR. ZACKOSKI

  • Overview

    1. What is Mathematical Literacy?2. Types of Mathematical Text3. Abilities to be Math Literate4. Math as a Language5. Strategies to Improve Mathematical Literacy6. Word Problem Application7. At Home Practices

  • Mathematical Literacy

    “Mathematical literacy is an individual’s capacity to identify and understand the role that mathematics plays in the world, to make well-founded judgements, and to engage in mathematics in ways that meet the needs of that individual’s current and future life as a constructive, concerned, and reflective citizen.”

    The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (1999)

  • Types of Mathematic Text

    Forms

    Information sheets (data)

    Price sheets/catalogs

    Invoices and billing statements

    Advertisements

    Tables, charts, graphs

    Diagrams

    Maps

    Calendars

    Recipes

  • Abilities Needed for Math Literacy

    Students need skills in…..1. Mathematical thinking and reasoning2. Mathematical argumentation (proofs)3. Mathematical communication4. Modeling5. Problem posing and solving6. Representation7. Symbols8. Tools and technology

  • Mathematic Language as Technical “Jargon”

    A developed language to describe abstract concepts of numbers and space

    Vocabulary Mathematical terms vs. everyday words

    Similar - alike, congruent, equivalent, equal

    Addition – increase, decrease, no change

    Zero – none, not having any

    Small words, big differences The area “of” a triangle, meaning the “inside” a triangle.

  • Strategies to Improve ML

    Strategic reading of word problems K-N-W-S model Vocabulary practice Determining the importance of the text Guided reading (questioning) of a math text

  • Strategic Reading

    Strategies

    Before Reading • Preview text (title, graphics, order of print)• Access prior knowledge• Purpose for reading (what questions to ask)

    While Reading • Check understanding of the text (vocabulary, paraphrasing)

    • Monitor comprehension through context clues,visualizing, inferencing, and predicting

    • Apply existing knowledgeAfter Reading • Summarize what was read

    • Evaluate the information provided in the text• Makes the appropriate applications of the idea

  • K-N-W-S Model

    K N W SWhat facts do I KNOW from the information in the problem?

    What information do I NOT need?

    What does the problem WANTto find?

    What STRATEGYor operations will I use to solve the problems?

  • Word Problem Practice

    Video Heaven rents movies for $3 a piece per night. The store also offers a video club plan. The plan costs $100 per year and allows unlimited rentals at $1 per movie per night, plus two free rentals per month. How many movies must you rent in a year to make the video club worthwhile?

  • Know the Facts

    PARENTS: encourage your child

    to “Get the Facts”Ask your child to help

    you solve basic real life problems

    Have your child explain how they came to their conclusion

  • Get the facts = PRACTICE

    1. Flash cards2. Students roll two dice, then multiply the 2 numbers

    they rolled together.3. Create a memory game–one card contains the

    factors, the other contains the product.4. Dominoes-students draw a domino that is face

    down. They multiply the dots on either side of the domino together.
