Discussion for How Much: Total, More, Of, Equal Portions
Dana Collett (Teacher (K-12))
This was great! I loved the various websites to activate prior knowledge and review the subject matter. I loved the "Matha Mia" song. My only concern is that not all schools have access to YouTube. The videos were great for the visual learners. I also liked the SOLVE method. This is very explicit and breaks down the concept step-by-step. Your scaffolding is very evident and offers students a good understanding of the concept. Wonderful!
It took me awhile to get the powerpoint going since I had to click on a very specific part of the text in order to move forward.

Wow! What a great STAIR! You did a great job of scaffolding instruction for learners. This powerpoint reviews terms using websites and fun videos, then provides a real context for which students would need to add/subtract/multiply/divide/fractions. I loved the SOLVE method you used to help students think critically step by step while completing each task. Finally, you gave students a chance to put into practice solving fraction problems on their own with guided feedback to try again if necessary. I think this would be a great way to help students learn fraction operations. Great job!
Everything worked great with this Power Point
