Exploring Connections
  Introduction | Try It Yourself: Area and Perimeter | The Products Game | Problem Reflection | Your Journal

 
 

You've just explored activities with many connections among mathematical concepts. Now we'd like you to write about your own classroom practice. As you make your journal entry, use the material you've just seen and read as a context.


Questions to write and reflect about:
  • What are some characteristics of these mathematical tasks that encouraged you to make connections?
  • How will exploring these two problems help you help students learn mathematics by making connections to previous experiences or problems? Be specific.
  • How do these and similar activities expand the teacher's opportunities to assess students' understanding and address their misconceptions?
Three ways to write and reflect:
  • Use pen and paper.
  • Use a word processor.
  • Use the form below.
Be sure to save what you have written before you navigate out of the journal section.
