Reflection: Pacing Compare methods of one digit by double digit multiplication - Section 3: Concept Development


As you can see in the reflection video below, this lesson went very well.  Students are progressing nicely through double digit by one digit multiplication and seeing connections between methods. After class I was wishing that I had a voice recording of every time a student said, "Ohhhhhh, I get it."  At this point in my multiplication unit, I find students really eager and willing to find products of large numbers.  I equate this to the belief that students have that math is a big set of rules with a bunch of procedures to memorize. If they don't get the rules and are bad at memorizing, then they don't get math.  This lesson, along with the previous lessons in this unit, help students realize that multiplication has many strategies, and once you understand how the strategies are working, students begin to realize that math is about making connections and seeing pattern, which are EVERYWHERE!   


 Students did a great job in this lesson exhibiting Math Practice 7 and seeing the patterns and connections between the six methods in the chart.

  Pacing: So HAPPY!
