These grade 1 students had the opportunity to reflect on their learning regarding addition and subtraction word problems. After looking through their work books and conferencing with their teacher, the students filled out a post-it-note and placed it under the strategy they felt most successful using. It was wonderful how each strategy was represented using their own work!
Today at AISM in Mozambique, Kindergarten parents were invited to join their children and be part of morning carpet time and then play some wonderful math games with their children. A beautiful opportunity to share learning!
These grade 2 students are showing some great math addition strategies, such as counting on and using a number line in order to try and make sense and solve a math problem. Nice work!
The primary school at the American International School of Mozambique created a community board with a weekly math challenges and Language Arts activities. It is very cool to see students and parents sharing their thinking to these challenges.
Students create pretend math test data to explore which type of graph represents the data best. After a brief number talk, students spend time creating a graph, which they think represents the data.
These grade 4 students are learning about graphing data and so they began by creating their own surveys, based on their own data interests. They then began to represent their data using bar graphs.
Grade 2 students are practicing solving problems in math using their understandings of measurement and addition strategies. Students are making sure to represent the picture of what is happening in the problem and using visual models to show their thinking!
These grade 4 students were having a number talk about what makes a good graph? They were examining various examples of how data can be represented and what makes a good representation of data.
A number talk in a KG class produced some really interesting observations about squares! Love getting in the minds of our young learners.
It begin with a class talk about what do good problem solvers do and then the students dove into the measurement problem! The room was full of math thinkers, approaching the problem using a variety of strategies from representing addition with unifix cubes, to building the picture with base 10 blocks, deconstructing numbers to add, sharing thinking, risk-taking, celebrating learning and the best part...happy student faces while problem solving!!!!!
