Reflection: Checks for Understanding More Fruit Mysteries - Section 2: Station Time


As students are working on the Fruit Mystery problems, you will want to notice how students are doing with the following:

  • How do they solve the puzzles?  Are they using a guess and check method?  Are they using knowledge of known number combinations?
  • Do they look for all of the possibilities or just settle for one?  Do they find new combinations by changing something about a combination they already have?
  • How do they record their combinations.  Are their equations accurate?  Are the Apples and Bananas clearly labeled?

I have included two videos that demonstrate the interactions that you will/could have with students as they solve these problems.

You will also want to keep notes of what approach each student is using to solve these problems.  When you get to the end of lesson discussion, you will want to have the knowledge of what specific strategy each student used.
