Number Session 10: Classroom Case Studies, Grades 6-8
 

In the previous sessions, you explored number and operations as a mathematics learner, both to analyze your own approach to solving problems and to gain some insight into your personal conception of number and operations. It may have been difficult to separate your thinking as a mathematics learner from your thinking as a mathematics teacher -- most teachers think about teaching as they are learning and think about learning as they are teaching. In this session, we shift the focus to your own classroom and to the approaches your students might take to mathematical tasks involving number and operations concepts.

In This Session:

Part A:

Observing a Case Study

Part B:

Reasoning About Number and Operations

Part C:

Problems That Illustrate Reasoning About Number and Operations
