Reflection: Routines and Procedures Cubes in a Bag - Section 2: Analyzing the Data


This lesson went really well and I don't think I would change anything the next time I use it.  It is an adapted version of Marilyn Burns' activity,  Whole Class: Tiles in the Bag from her book About Teaching Mathematics: A K-8 Resource.  My teammate, Cathy Mooney, shared this version with me in one of our planning periods.  I had been teaching Euler Paths and she was teaching probability that week.  We swapped lessons and each taught the other's lesson the next week.  We always talk about how we couldn't do this job (hands-on, student engaging lessons) without having a wonderful teammate to share ideas with. 

Happy Retirement Mrs. Mooney!  I am glad I was able to record this lesson online for everyone, and myself to find again:)
