When will there be teaching videos available that model how to teach a math lesson using the rigorous instruction required by Common Core? How wll the teaching of the basic algorithmic facts of math be incorporated into the indept (applicable) teaching of math?
I don't understand how you can give students a real world situation to solve (in math) without teaching the computational portion of math. For example, how can I give my students a real life situation that involves multiplying fractions (a party is planned for 50 guests, but the recipe only serves 10) without teaching the principals of multiplying and/or adding fractions (adding fractions requires like denominators, changing a mixed number to an improper fraction to multiply, how to multiply fractions). How are we suppose to teach rigorously without teaching the foundational skills.
