Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Naming Arrays - Section 1: Vocabulary Rule Building


I have used this strategy of giving the students the answer to a problem and then having them define what it is or why it works for several years now, knowing that it helps build individual understanding.  However, now that I am paying more attention to the Common Core and the 8 Mathematical Practices, I recognize this teaching strategy also points students to practice attending to precision and making sense of a problem and persevering to solve them.  A lot of bang for your buck
