Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Assessment: Finding Combinations for 11 - Section 4: Session Wrap Up

The discussion about the equal sign and its meaning is an important one.  Even the strongest of students have trouble defining what equal means (at this point in the year).  I want to use this session wrap up to really start pushing students to a conceptual understanding of equality.  I have include a video clip of my discussion.  It is one child's response.  You can see that the student is still hesitant with her understanding.  She is a child who uses the sign with her equations and not he surface appeared to understand the concept but the video contradicts that belief.
