4E x 2 Instructional Model : Inquiry in Motion

4E x 2 Instructional Model

The 4E x 2 Instructional Model was designed to unite three major learning constructs (inquiry instruction, formative assessment, and reflective practice) that have all been shown to improve learning. When well integrated these learning constructs help facilitate deeper teaching and more powerful learning experiences. All the lessons designed and available under the lesson plan tab use the 4E x 2 Model.

New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics | EngageNY

The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. The second are the strands of mathematical proficiency specified in the National Research Council’s report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, conceptual understanding (comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations and relations), procedural fluency (skill in carrying out procedures flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately), and productive disposition (habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled with a belief in diligence and one’s own efficacy).

Common Core State Standards – Common Core State Standards (CA Dept of Education)

While implementation of specific academic content standards is a local decision and not mandated by EC, California strongly recommends their local use. Additionally, statewide assessments which are mandated by EC are based upon California’s adopted academic content standards. California is supporting local implementation of the CCSS through many resources available to all LEAs many of which are noted in the Common Core State Standards Systems Implementation Plan for California.
