Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Investigating the Properties! - Section 2: Comparing the difference!

I noticed that some students seemed a bit puzzled during our open discussion.  So, I stopped for moment to have students self-assess their thinking so far.  This is an important tool for improving academic performance and self-efficacy.  I ask students to engage in a short activity to see how well they could discover the similar factors in two given numbers.  I reminded students of the primary focus of this lesson. I told them there are three essential questions that will determine your readiness to move forward.

Can you determine the multiples? Explain how.

Can you generate and explain the pattern between the multiples of two whole numbers?

Can you predict what multiples may appear in other numbers? Explain

These are all questions that we have been exploring all day, so basically you guys are going to use what you have learned so far to explore and investigate a bit on your own.  I use students’ response to determine if additional support is needed on this objective.
