Reflection: Performance Tasks Gallery Walk Division - Section 2: Concept Development


I am very surprised at my students performance on the two problems... and not in a good surprised kind of way. I am still thinking about number 11 and how many of my students did not get the correct answer to this problem. I had many students say that number 11 was difficult. I didn't hear as many comments about number 12, but I still had many students not get the correct answer for number 12 as well.  

My students did an excellent job dividing.  They have this skill down, however, they failed to interpret the remainder and answer the question in each problem.  I had many students report that they would need to mow 127 remainder 2 lawns.  This was really frustrating to see because I was concerned and frustrated that they didn't see or hear how this didn't make sense!
