Chapter 3: Math educators strive to engage students in probl
em solving with high-quality tasks. November’s CCTM *Taking Action*
book study unpacks how to implement tasks that promote reasoning and proble
m solving. We will discuss criteria and guidelines for selecting an appropr
iate task as well as the key components for effective implementation. Make
connections to the other Mathematics Teaching Practices (NCTM’s *Princip
les to Actions*, 2014) and support equitable learning opportunities for
you students by joining us for the November session.

The objectives of the Taking Action book study are:

- To increase teacher's under standing of the key features of the eight effective mathematics teaching pr actices
- To examine how the teaching practices
*interact*as a framework for*equitable mathematics instruction* - To recog
nize how the teaching practices support
*deeper learning of mathematics< /em>* *To provide a variety of actives, strategies, and resources to assist teachers in**applying*the ideas discussed in the book to the ir own practices.
