Middle School: Using Tools in Support of Mathematical Thinking

Clip 6/6: 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.


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