Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Multiplication: x3, x6 - Section 5: Independent Practice


I loved, loved, loved this conversation with the student in the following video! Prior to taping, I was conferencing with the student as he was completing Algorithm Practice x6. He then turned to me and asked, "Is 6 x 7 the same as 7 x 6?"

I responded: How could you find that out? He pulled out his Hundred Number Line Page and went right to work: Communitive Property.MOV.

I loved how he explained that he wanted to test his "hypothesis!" I then guided him to write out an equation for each of his number line models.

I was soooo proud of him for seeking the answer to his own question (student-led inquiry). 

Overall, this lesson went quite well. By using the same activities as yesterday, students easily built upon their understanding of multiplication facts from yesterday to make sense of facts today. Most students were able to meet the learning goal.
