This part is focused on connecting length measurement activities drawn from curriculum materials with levels of the learning trajectory. The discussion will also focus on ways to modify tasks in order to target particular levels.

Key Points

The work of analyzing and modifying tasks from curriculum materials is intended to support the development of analytic skills that can be used with any curriculum materials. Further, it illustrates the utility of the learning trajectory in supporting instruction. Modifying tasks so that they target particular levels is a skill that helps meet the needs of different learners in the classroom.
