# Clip 6/21: Standard 7: Look for & Make Use of Structure Using Fractions 2B

## Overview

*Mathematically proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure.*

Michelle Makinson introduces a new card, a contextualized or word problem representation. She begins by having students create a visual representation matching a contextualized representation, and a verbal representation identifying the mathematical quantities. She emphasizes the importance of the discussion between students that proves that the cards match. She circulates around the classroom, engaging pairs in conversation about their discussion and their representations. Students use tape loops on the back of their cards so that they can rearrange them as needed. She explains the importance of students debating and discussing their representations. They engage in identifying patterns, structures, and connections between the representations.
