Reflection: Complex Tasks Factor Pairs, Arrays, Patterns and Fun! Building factor pairs to 50 - Section 5: Looking for Patterns


Reflection of a great teaching time...

In this reflection, I am looking a bit weary. It is late and I am thinking about the teachable moments in this lesson, feeling quite pleased with how it went. I think this is the best way to introduce and transition students into thinking about factor pairs. I am wondering how many students will be more fluent in math facts because of this?
