Clip 7/9: Lesson - Part 6
Each set of partners was asked to join another pair to share their matches. Students were asked to compare the matches and agree or disagree. If students agreed on everything, then they were asked to share how they decided on the most difficult matches.
Some students were sharing their answers only without sharing how they made sense of the match or why they agreed or disagreed. Other students were able to share their thinking and explain to the other group. The students who were able to do this well made sense of equivalent fractions through conversations with each other that weren’t teacher directed. Whenever students move to real questioning of each other, it shows that they are engaged in the mathematics of the task. They want to understand and be understood. I want to work to promote this with all students.
