Reflection: Student Feedback Visually Thinking - Section 3: Working Together


In this video, a student gives his reasons as to why multiplication  would be the best way for him to solve the problem.  As I circled the room I noticed he had a lot of dots on his board, however, I wanted to see just how long it would take him to figure out that the method would take a long time.  Of course it did not take long for him to try to figure out another way to solve.  I learned that if you just give students the information and observe what they do with it, most of them will eventually figure out their own way to solve.
