There was a lot of confusion on how to draw the number line (this was using whole numbers, but not beginning at 0). I hadn't planned on drawing a number line being the challenge of the lesson--especially because we'd done dot plots with the same data last week.<BR/><BR/>Anyway, I thought of you and your reminders of how students struggle with number lines. I'm flipping through, trying to see if you have any lessons appropriate for their level posted. Again, thanks for sharing (even when the posts start to feel boring to write).Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-30226356.post-19607247814214159102008-01-08T23:21:00.000-08:002008-01-08T23:21:00.000-08:00I agree that students need to develop fluency in t...I agree that students need to develop fluency in the area of decimals and fractions. Reinforcing the relationships visually is super important. Many math instructors do not do this. I am a bit sad that you feel the need to be doing it in high school.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
