How Close to 100?
● Play with a partner
● Take turns rolling the dice and multiplying the digits
○ Write the multiplication number sentence
○ Draw an array on the grid to pictorially represent the
○ Explain your rationale to your partner
● Game ends when both players have rolled the dice and
cannot fit any more arrays on the grid
Rubric Tool
Connecting to the CCSS-M: Operations and Algebraic Thinking
GRADE 2: Use addition to find the total number of objects arranged in rectangular arrays with up to 5 rows and
up to 5 columns.
GRADE 3: Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal
groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the
unknown number to represent the problem.
GRADE 4: Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35
is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as
multiplication equations.
Connecting to the CCSS-M: Standards for Mathematical Practice
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
● Students make conjectures and plan a strategy
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively
● Students discuss or use representations to make sense of quantities and their relationships
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
● Students listen to the solution strategy of others, discuss alternative solutions, and defend their
6. Attend to precision
● Students provide carefully formulated explanations
● Students measure accurately
Connecting to the CCSS-M: Other Factors
Material Alignment
Evidence of tasks with multiple entry points that can be solved using a variety of solution strategies or
Formative assessment of students’ mathematical understandings
Professional Learning
PLCs about student understandings at and across grades
Community Communication
Activity focused parent nights to support parents to understand the types of activities that their
students are engaging in
Collaborative Work Session - Give and Get
Find a group consisting of 4 individuals from different districts.
Look at each other’s rubrics and notice how their strengths and weaknesses correspond to yours.
Considering the categories where one individual is at a higher stage than the other, discuss strategies
that have been implemented to reach that higher stage.
Groups can also consider the guiding questions.
Guiding Questions
1. What is going well with your implementation?
2. Where are your challenges?
3. How are you addressing challenges?
Bringing it Together
What resonated?
What are some interesting solution strategies?
What ideas do you have for moving forward?
How can the County Office be supportive?
