Today we talked about unit rates (and representations thereof) based work with the Coffee Maker problem and the Perfect Pint of Pink Paint. See the image below.
Then after lunch, we discussed the reading about “access and equity” from Principles to Actions. We discussed productive vs unproductive beliefs, we played with the scenario cards, and we connected all of that with
- the 5 strands of mathematical proficiency
- the Standards for Mathematical Practice
- The Effective Teaching Practices
Then we solved the Hourglass problem, and compared student work thereon.
Tonight you are invited to pre-read your assigned “message” reading. These were distributed at the end of class.
Have a good night and see you tomorrow!
