Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Multiple Towers - Section 3: Guided Practice


Recently, I was introduced to these Flip Books created by the Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics (scroll down the page). 

According to research, one of these Flip Books points out that "teachers need to provide instructional experiences so that students progress from the concrete level, to the pictorial level, then to the abstract level when learning mathematical concepts (Concrete, Representational, Abstract CRA)."

For this lesson, I felt that I successfully implemented this instructional practice: 

Concrete: unifix cubes

Representational: number line

Abstract: Venn Diagram
