Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Making Sense of Remainders Day 2 - Section 2: Concept development

 

As you can see in reflection video, this lesson went well. In reflecting on the three days I will spend "making sense of remainders," I would change these three days by focusing on one specific remainder strategy at a time. Instead of lumping the rounding, dropping, or sharing the remainder into three practice days, I would separate these out next year. 

My students really enjoyed the round up story and I would like to incorporate the sharing story and drop the remainder stories for my students as well.
