Observing Student Representations

Let's look at Building Viewpoints in a classroom setting.

As you view the activity, keep these questions in mind:

  • How do students progress from the representation of the model that is provided to developing their own drawings on grid paper?
  • How do the students develop deeper mathematical thinking from the use of their drawings on grid paper?
  • What is the value of having students use two-dimensional tools, like the grid paper, to represent three-dimensional structures?
  • Why does the teacher choose this particular activity? How will it help students prepare to draw three-dimensional representations on their grid paper?
