Rationale for Student
Learning Objective
Problem solving is a core application of mathematics. Using the 4 operations to
solve problems is a Major Cluster Emphasis as identified by PARCC
Frameworks.
The chart shows growth targets for all students.
Target
Analyze problem solving from grade 3 (if available).
Analyze pretest of problem solving assessment tasks.
Attach class roster to share students’ scores of pre-teaching data.
Students scoring this value on the
pre-assessment:
0-30%
31-45%
46-55%
56-69%
70-79%
80-89%
Will increase to this score on the
post-assessment.

*Please note: Students identified by IEP teams as having significant cognitive
disabilities will have individual targets.

This SLO is a sample. Targets need to be adjusted based on your students’ data. Student growth should be
achieved for all students.






Be purposeful when planning lessons to include challenging
mathematical tasks that elicit the Mathematics Practices in their
students.
Focus on representations for solving problems.
Work with all addition/subtraction/multiplication/division problemsolving structures.
Focus on problem solving strategies and avoid key word approach
Monitor problem solving instructional progress.
Apply problem solving to other concepts including measurement,
fractions, and area/perimeter.
Differentiate instruction and utilize small group instruction.
Use multiple means of assessment including observation and
paper/pencil assessment.
