4th Grade Math - Number Operations: Multiplication & Division

Clip 15/16: Closure - 4th Grade Number Ops


Asking students to reflect on "Charlie's way" of drawing a picture (which is the bar model).

Teacher Commentary

Something I strive to keep growing better at is asking questions that facilitate useful student reflection. In this lesson, I didn’t get to give students a practice problem before asking them to reflect. Instead, I moved from surprise at how many students were unsure of the model and didn’t get $32 for the total amount between by Maria and Wayne, directly into a reflection.
