Look-Fors… Over time
Build up important math “look-fors” over time
- Don’t expect much the first time,
- This activity needs to be regularly repeated.
- Then next time…remember when we did the “what can you say about ___?” activity, what sorts of things did we talk about? Is there anything we could add now?
- About student interest and engagement…they will be frustrated at first, but grow to like it.
- Don’t forget to try with different representations
- How might this be useful?
- When would it be helpful?
