LEARNING OUTCOMES AND INSTRUCTION
The SFUSD Math Core Curriculum is built upon the foundation of rich tasks that allow for diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments. These tasks are the Entry, Apprentice, Expert, and Milestone Tasks. The Entry Task for each unit has diagnostic components, while the Apprentice and Expert Tasks are primarily formative. The Milestone Task is primarily summative. The combination of all tasks should provide timely feedback that prompts students to make active use of that information in their learning.
Math Milestone Tasks assess students’ understanding of the CCSS-Math concepts and skills for a particular unit, including their ability to express their thinking and justify their results.
The tasks are designed to address four central questions:
Entry Task: What do you already know?
Apprentice Task: What sense are you making of what you are learning?
Expert Task: How can you apply what you have learned so far to a new situation?
Milestone Task: Did you learn what was expected of you from this unit?
