Reflection: Intervention and Extension Make Much More! - Section 2: Group Practice!


Some students had a difficult time explaining their answers using the appropriate mathematical language. To solve this problem, I wrote an example of an explanation on the board. I told students, that even though the explanation was correct, it could have been a little explained precisely using the appropriate mathematical language. The students and I added mathematical terms to the given explanation to make it more precise.  After we finished composing the second explanation, we compare it to the first one to discover how to correctly write an explanation using appropriate language.
