Reasoning About Division

Fourth grade teacher Lynn Simpson helps her students to understand division by exploring partial quotients and discussing multiple division strategies. In the first part of the lesson, students reason about related problems to make sense of the partial quotient strategies. In the second part of the lesson, students participate in a "True/False" activity to determine whether an equation is true or false. In this activity, students share their reasoning with a partner and engage in discourse…

Peer learning

Facilitating Peer Learning

Students in Mark Egger's seventh grade math class take ownership of math content through dialogue, peer teaching, and presentation. As students work at table groups, the teacher asks questions to push students to explain their thinking and to encourage them to talk about problem solving with one another.

Math teachers know that different students approach the same problem in different ways. Watch a video that shows how teachers can take advantage of the multiple approaches students take to solve a single problem.

One Problem, Many Approaches

Students in Erlinda Fazio's 6th grade math class use multiple strategies to compare and add fractions. Students utilize fraction strips and circle graphs in the lesson. The teacher employs the "build it, draw it, write it" model to reach students with different learning styles.
