Reflection: Evens and Odds - Section 3: Individual Practice


An important part of mathematics, as outlined in the Common Core is being able to think about math and what you are doing when you solve a problem. Today I gave pairs of students an IPAD and asked them to explain how they would answer a question. The video that follows is what one child said about how she would solve a double digit equation. 

Listening to her thinking allows me to have insight into her understanding of the concepts of place value, and the associative properties of numbers. She used her understanding of tens and ones to combine the numbers and solve the problem.
