Intended Learning Outcomes:
As the teacher reads 12 Ways to Get to 11, by Eve Merriam, the students listen to the words and move their beads from one end of the chenille stem to the other, based on the numbers that the book provides.
After reading the story, see if they can ever slide the beads over in an equal group. Share solutions or strategies and have students discuss their reasoning.
Krpan, Cathy Marks, 2001. The write math writing in the math class, Dale Seymour Publications, pg. 4
“Students need a solid grasp of mathematical concepts in order to function successfully in an ever-changing world. To facilitate this, educators must provide opportunities for students to deepen their understanding of mathematics. We can accomplish this by engaging students in exploring mathematical ideas and concepts through writing. When students write about mathematics, they think about abstract ideas in a more meaningful way and make connections between what they already know and what they are learning.”
