    How do you plan to use this task?

    After reviewing the Teacher Guide, do you still have any wonders or worries?

    WOW! I love your visuals! This one is a goldmine and I used this the first day after we wrapped up our patterning unit and as an introduction to Numbers. After looking at the diagnostic data for Operations for my intermediate class, it was apparent that there are many gaps (going all the way back to subtraction is the inverse operation for addition) that I need to address before my class is ready to learn about decimals. From Visual Math Talk Prompt #1, with many pauses and student work on white boards and talk among groups, we were able to pull out consolidation on the concepts summarized in the slide I will attempt to attach…

        The next day it took us 20 minutes to get from 3n as the number of squares in relation to circles, to the idea of the number of circles being 1/3 n or n divided by 3. This has been a valuable springboard into understanding proportional relationships and an opportunity to explore inverse operations. I think we’ll revisit this one (Days 3-5) in February when we are meant to be looking at ratio and percent.
