Reflection: Rigor Grandma's Cookie Production Company - Section 3: Active Engagement


My goal is that all students are engaged within their zone of proximal development. That means the activity is rigorous for each student, as students are working just outside of their “comfort zone” to apply what they are thinking to solve new problems.  

As I work with partnerships or individuals, I have at the ready, new "order forms" for them to work with, based on the understanding I believe they have.  It is critical to be sure that the students have a firm understanding and ability to apply the "dealing out" strategy before I ask them to move to skip counting of equal groups.

Unit 4: Understanding Division
Lesson 3 of 13

Objective: Students will be able to use the concept that the division sign means "put into sets of" and solve problems by predicting the number of sets from skip counting.

Big Idea: Children need to understand the two types of division, sharing and measuring/grouping. This lesson will allow them to explore strategies to solve for quotients using manipulatives.
