Continuation from yesterday’s post.
There were some interesting ways students went about finding the total tickets, have a look.
I have been working on transitions within 3-Act problems.They always start really well then student engagement and quality of work slowly decline. Folding a sheet of plain old paper into 6 regions and having a purpose for each region has helped quite a bit.
For those interested
- Estimate: Guess, low, high
- Info they need
- Game plan of how they will use that info
- Provided information
- and 6. Work
One strategy that worked well today was I had students share out their confident calculations. I threw ’em on the board and then whoever had the closest talked about their solution process.
The tail end of lessons seems to be a weak spot in my daily instruction, I’m interested to hear in what sort of closing routines you all have.
