Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Capacity Conjectures & Number Line - Section 4: Student Practice


Here's Another Incorrect Conjecture!. I couldn't help but share it! The student then worked on Disproving & Changing! the conjecture to align with his "evidence." When reflecting on this lesson and the moments in which students courageously provided counterexamples, I'm reminded of the power of discourse, questioning, analyzing situations, and justifying conclusions. In those moments my students' mathematical understanding grew as well as their confidence! It was such an empowering experience!
