The main objective for this class will be to learn how to talk about solving multiplication, division, and fractional word problems constructively in a group. We will cover conversational/ discussion etiquette, how to write out and explain your thought process as you solve a math problem, comparing different methods of solving problems, and talking about what each student learned in class. Each class will begin with a quick greeting, reading the problems, students recording their math tools...
Students will learn how to discuss how they approach a multiplication, division, or fraction word problem. Students will learn alternative methods for solving these problems and how to positively discuss different mathematical problems while analyzing different systems for accuracy and efficiency.
Beyond my both of my degrees in education and I was apart of an ongoing professional development for 2 years focusing in teaching students kindergarten to 8th grade how to build their understanding with math journals and mathematical discussion. I have also taught this and similar classes for over 6 years to both public and private settings to elementary age students.
Students who are struggling with math concepts that were covered in the journal can complete the optional practice packet.
Students will receive a weekly Journal prompt that they will need to print out or have written into their math journals. Students will also need a pencil, eraser, and can use manipulative items like counting cubes or fraction stacks etc that they feel comfortable using from their normal math curriculum.
Students will be assessed on their math journals, their participation in the class discussion, and their presentation of their work.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
