This morning we spent learning about why the integer (positive and negative numbers) operations work! We talked about adding, subtracting, and multiplying signed numbers – ultimately learning why a negative number times a negative number is a positive number!!!
We then embarked on solving the Kayak problem. After lunch, we continued with the Kayak problem before moving on to pedagogy.
During the pedagogy time today, we read Cathy Seeley’s message titled “Upside Down Teaching” and talked about positive reactions to the message and challenges with teaching in this way. We then did the “Planning for Implementing High-Level Tasks” activity.
For those who want to reread, tomorrow we will be reading and discussing the Access and Equity section in PtoA (p. 59-69).
