## Reflection: Organizational Systems The Video Game Model of Adding - Section 3: Independent Practice

The types of mistakes that a student makes in this lesson can be extremely informative, and that is why I created an anecdotal notes page.  When there are many different problems, I find that it's informative to document the exact context of my observation.

Creating a form ahead of time saves me extra writing and, because I don't write quickly, makes it possible for me to take more detailed notes because I'm not wasting effort on recording the problem itself.  I've found that this type of very simple pre-planning step can truly improve the quality of my observational notes.

# The Video Game Model of Adding

Unit 3: Multiplication
Lesson 11 of 11

## Big Idea: Video games often dole out points in groups of 25, 50 and 100 because they are easy numbers to multiply. Practice with patterns of 5 and 10 apply directly to understanding patterns with 50 and 100.
