Reflection: Complex Tasks Assessing Measurement Techniques - Section 4: Session Wrap Up


I have included three pieces of student work in this reflection (see resource section).  This first student still used the approach of counting all.  Although she did get the correct answer, she used an approach that doesn't meet my expectations for this time of the year.  I will continue to intervene with her as I try to move her to the strategy of counting on.  You will also note that she forgot to use the equal sign.  

The second student used the strategy of counting on from a number.  His thinking is clear and he was able to represent his thinking and write an equation to represent the math.

In the third piece, the student used two known facts to solve the problem.  This exceeds the standard and shows a connection to a sound understanding of numerical relationships.
