Grade 8 Math learning

IMG_0241

At the American International School of Mozambique, students spent their grade 8 math class understanding surface area and area using their own hands. When learning is designed around a rich task, student engagement goes up, learning becomes differentiated, learning goes deeper and it opens up the learning to provide multiple opportunities for the teacher to ask questions, support student learning with direct and small group instruction. Wonderful math class!

A room full of math thinkers!

The grade 5 math teachers have a room each day dedicated to solving rich tasks. Students have choice in the problem they want to solve and use their understandings gained from workshops to apply it to real-world problems. They collaborate with each other and get messy with math! The level of engagement of the students was awesome to see and hear!

Grade 5 students working on Number sense!

Lots of learning happening on the Grade 5 floor! The teachers and students are piloting a workshop model approach to learning math. Among the 4 classrooms, there were students leading math workshops on multiplication, teacher led exploration about perimeter and area using blocks, students outside adding decimals using base 10 blocks and small group instruction. Best part was the level of engagement, student agency and POSITIVE ENERGY!!!!!!
