Hello, did you have a question about Go Math? Or are you looking for people that use it? Just curious about what you are looking to find out!
I went to a math training in early August and was lucky to have Juli Dixon as the facilitator (author of GO Math). She stated that a good way to use GO math is to "hide" the scaffolding on the first problem in the lesson. Allow students time to figure it out on their own and go from there.

Thanks for replying Francine, I enjoy your selection of videos.
Are you saying that I should use the first problem as a "Do Now"?
Could anyone outline a Go Math lesson for 3, 4, or 5th grade. Starting from the beginning, which component you begin with, how long you spend on it, and whether its considered modeled, guided, or independent?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! and Thanks for all that you do.
Thanks for replying Lauren, I would like to see a video of a teacher progressing through a Go Math lesson.
Yes. Juli Dixon stated to allow students approximately 5 minutes to figure it out on their own. Basically, they should not have their books open. If you have a SMART board, project the problem with the shade hiding the scaffolding parts. After students have worked, lead a class discussion on how to solve the problem THEN reveal the scaffolding. Try to end each math lesson with the Real World Application if able. Let me know if you have additional questions. I can pull up my notes from training to provide a template.
Thanks Francine, I like this idea for at least two reasons. The first is that I usually make a problem so this will say me some time and the other is that I Flip the math class that means I can use this problem to assess the effectiveness of the video lecture.
