Reflection: Student Ownership Matrices in the World Around Us - Section 1: Warm-Up


During today's warm-up, I was pretty hands off with my students. If they expressed that they were having difficulties I encouraged students to refer to their notes from yesterday. I think that it is important for students to take the initiative to review the necessary skills. They should know everything that they need to in order to complete these tasks.Their mathematical practices should support their work as they pull it all together.

By the end of today's lesson I want all of my students to be comfortable with the procedure and to have a general understanding of matrix multiplication, using numerical and algebraic terms.
