### Explicit Teaching in Problem-based Mathematics

Explicit Teaching in Problem-based Mathematics offers a re-imagining of what it means to engage in “direct” instruction. Rather than a separate pedagogical approach, explicit instruction is an integral part of problem-based learning and instruction. Animation and video are used to feature educator moves that support students to “notice things they would not otherwise see.” Think uncovering. Think making visible.

### Linking Today’s Understanding to Tomorrow’s Learning: Proportional Reasoning

In the resource Linking Today’s Understanding to Tomorrow’s Learning: Proportional Learning you will see teachers who think deeply about ways to help students develop proportional reasoning.

They determine how to make ideas explicit for students, to help them “notice things that would not otherwise be seen. The teachers use a wide variety of teaching strategies to have students learn deeply ratio tables.

Each day, these educators increase their understanding of how and what their students learn. at the same time, they develop their own capacity as learners and teachers.
