Everybody is talking about RIGOR or asking, "What is rigor?" If you do any research on rigor, you will find that rigor does not mean difficulty. Instead rigor means the level of mental processing that must occur to answer a question, perform a task or generate a product. Two widely used measures of rigor are Bloom's Taxonomy and Webb's Depth of Knowledge Levels. Both measures of rigor go from the simple to the complex. Karen Hess' Cognitive Rigor Matrix integrates these models as a strategy…

As I reflected on the conversation later, it really reminded me of the importance of understanding what our students understand about math and the importance of developing a conceptual understanding before…
