What is mathematical reasoning? What makes a rich task?

Engaging students in rich, highly cognitive mathematical experiences develops confident mathematical risk takers. Math is about more than memorizing facts and algorithms; we must also recognize the importance of creativity, surprise, elegance and personal strategies in creating meaningful learning experiences that transfer.

Mathematical reasoning is fundamental to knowing and doing mathematics. This session will focus on the connection between mathematical reasoning and deep learning. Participants will engage in rich tasks that can be used in their classrooms and will explore the role of open and parallel tasks to foster inclusive, mathematically rich classrooms.
