Unit 1: What is the Mathematician's Plan?


Back to: Mini-course: The Mathematician's Plan: Promoting Thinking In Math

Lesson 1: The Mathematician's Plan and Purpose

This lesson introduces the parts of The Mathematician's Plan. Participants will leave this lesson with the ability to identify all the parts of the Mathematician's Plan. In addition, participants will be able to explain the purpose and benefits of using the Mathematician's Plan to improve problem solving in math.

Lesson 2: What Does The Mathematician's Plan Look Like in Practice

This lesson provides participants with samples of the Mathematician's Plan being used to solve a variety of math questions. Participants will be able to identify the parts of the Mathematician's plan when looking at an exemplar sample. At the end of this lesson participants will create their own exemplar sample of the Mathematician's plan in use.
