## Reflection: Grappling with Complexity How Many Dots? Day 2 - Section 3: Lesson Wrap Up

This discussion is an important one.  I want to make sure that students are understanding that the 2 digit numbers are made up of a group of tens and some ones.  I also want to make sure that they understand that the tens column is not just going down one but one group of ten.  It is important to make sure that concept is clear in their minds.

Today, the students noticed that:

-Ones column stayed the same each time.

-Ten was subtracted each time.

-The tens column went down 1 ten.

Again, this last observation is huge and not everyone is grappling this idea but it is an ongoing discussion that will build through exposure, discussion, and modeling.
