  Make a Lesson Plan | Summing Up the Session | Final Journal


So, what have you done in this session?

  • In Part A, you observed students as they solved problems related to finding unit rates.
  • In Part B, you explored the usefulness of diagrams in problem-solving approaches.
  • In Part C, you considered the importance of carefully selecting rich problems so that students can build new mathematical skills and concepts. You also learned about strategies that successful problem solvers frequently use and you explored the important role the teacher plays in exposing students to new strategies.
  • In Part D, you applied your increased awareness of problem-solving strategies to your examination of a variety of solution methods for division problems that produce fractions.
  • In Part E, you developed your own lesson plan and goals for your classroom.

You will now have an opportunity to consolidate your thoughts by writing in your journal. This final journal entry will mark your completion of the session.
