Observing Student Problem Solving
  Introduction | Making "Ominos" | Student Work | Questions and Answers | Student Work Reflection | Observe a Classroom | Classroom Practice | Your Journal

 
 

You've just observed a problem involving hexominos, with a focus on problem solving. Now we'd like you to write about your own classroom practice. As you write in your journal, use the material you've just seen and read as a context.


Questions to write and reflect about:
  • In what ways is this lesson a rich topic for exploration?
  • How does the problem provide a basis for mathematical discussion among the students?
  • What is the role of the teacher in setting the classroom environment for effective problem solving? Be specific.
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.
