Reflection: Perseverance Multplication Application with Food Service Staff - Section 2: Concept Development


As seen in the following reflection video, this was a great lesson for fourth grade CCSS content standards as well as building students perseverance and their ability to think abstractly and quantitatively. (Math Practice Standards 1 and 2)  The wrap up of this lesson was a critical component of this lesson as students observed other's strategies for solving this problem.  This lesson will also flow nicely into an upcoming lesson about estimation and multiplication.  Students used estimating today when they said that there were about 4 weeks in a month or that the food service chef would cook chicken nuggets about 12 days a month. I will be making connections back to this lesson when I present that future estimation lesson.
