day 14: helping students understand the purpose of the pocket 100 chart

Using Classroom Supports: Mia uses charts to engage students in understanding numerical relationships; in the third week of school, she engages her students in counting backwards from 99 to 0, highlighting patterns in place value.

CONSIDER:
How can a “game” approach help students understand the purpose of tools like a pocket 100 chart?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Using Tools in Support of Thinking, Mia Buljan, 2nd grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Mia Buljan's 2nd grade classroom over the course of a school year. In the guide (available as a PDF or an iBook download), you can explore extended narratives and questions for reflection around "using tools in support of thinking."
