Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Start At/Stop At - Section 2: Introducing Start At/Stop At


I had a great discussion with my students about the amount of numbers we would say if the stop at number was closer to the starting number.  Some of the students understood that there would be less numbers between the two but couldn't articulate it.  One girl was on the right track and with a little guidance was able to explain her thinking.  I have included this video so you can see how to foster a conversation that pushes a students to communicate their ideas effectively to their peers.
