day 158: peers make use of tools in support of learning

The View from Day 158: Moving into the last weeks of the school year, Patty Ferrant’s students individually and collectively make use of tools and resources in their classroom to support their learning. In eighth grade, students make use of calculators when appropriate to support and check their accuracy.

CONSIDER:
How does your students’ use of, and access to, tools change over the course of the year?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Using Tools in Support of Mathematical Thinking, Patty Ferrant, 8th Grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Patty Ferrant's 8th-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 mathematical thinking."
