Reflection: Unit Planning Organizing Playlists & Arrays - Section 3: Student Practice


When observing this student conference, Student Explaining 930:2 Part A.MOV and Student Explaining 930:2 Part B.MOV, I am so glad that I chose to begin this unit with long division (even though it was an abstract concept). I am convinced that students need ample practice using this multi-step strategy. If I had waited unit the end of the unit to teach the long division steps, students would not be provided with as much practice.

Also, when students are able to solve the standard algorithm method alongside the array method (representational), they are given the opportunity to develop a conceptual understanding of the long division process.
