Observing Student Connections
  Introduction | Building Viewpoints | Questions and Answers #1 | More Building Viewpoints | Questions and Answers #2 | Observe a Classroom | Classroom Practice | Your Journal

 
 

We've just observed a problem involving Building Viewpoints with a focus on connections. 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 previous mathematics concepts does this lesson connect to? What connections are embedded throughout this lesson?
  • How does making connections enable students to move from building and viewing the structure to being able to draw the views just by looking at the building plan?
  • Once students have completed a task, what questions might you ask to help them connect their thinking to other mathematical ideas?
  • How could you extend this task?
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.
