You can now watch a video excerpt (duration 0:54) at left of the class you just observed as they continue to explore the Fraction Tracks game.
After you have completed the activity and watched the video, reflect on at least two of the following questions:
- In what ways did the students communicate their understanding of using equivalent fractions to add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators?
- How did the use of groups help to encourage student communication?
- How did the use of groups help the teacher determine the understanding of individual students? How did she use this information?
- What are some of the techniques the teacher used to help students clarify their thinking?
