Once you’re in the “room” feel free to text in
your thoughts and questions.
Shifting Focus
– How can I teach my kids to get the
answer to this problem?
– Evaluate answers to determine proficiency.
• Common Core
– How can I use this problem to teach the
mathematics of this unit?
– Examine responses to uncover student thinking
and inform next steps pedagogically as all
students move toward big idea(s) of a unit.
• Divide 365/4 (by hand) using three methods.
Sense Making: Fraction
Division
1. What question might this expression
2. Find the quotient in a way that
makes sense.
3. Share your reasoning with your
neighbor(s) and/or send to Socrative
#51016
– What justifies your method?
– What prior knowledge is needed?

Two “Big Ideas”
• Equivalence
• Proportionality
Equality
If you learned to interpret the equal
sign as an operation,
•3+8=
• 23 x 7 =
how would you make sense of these?
• 4 x 97 = 4 (90 + 7)
• 2x – 7 = x + 11
Euclid’s Algebra Challenge
• Model this geometrically, then with
algebraic symbols.
• If a straight line segment be cut at
random, the square on the whole is
equal to the squares on the segments
and twice the rectangle contained by the
segments.
(Euclid, Elements, II.4, 300 B.C.)
How Not to Learn
Proportional Reasoning
• What is not
developed
when
students
“learn” this
first?
• Why does
this
algorithm
work?
Reasoning Proportionally
•
John’ s mixture was 3 spoonfuls of sugar and 12
spoonfuls of lemon juice. Mary’ s mixture was 4
spoonfuls of sugar and 13 spoonfuls of lemon
juice. Whose lemonade is sweeter, John’ s or
Mary’ s? Or would they taste equally sweet?
•
Eva and Alex want to paint the door of their
garage. They mix 2 cans of white paint and 3
cans of black paint to get a particular shade of
gray. They then add one more can of each
color. Will the new shade of gray be lighter,
darker, or the same?

problem solving, and

Rhythm Wheel: Exploring
Multiplicative Reasoning
After 4 loops of this wheel:
1. How many individual sounds will
be played? How do you know
this?
2. How many times will the “open”
hand drum sound
be played?
How do you know?
3. How many times more will the
“open” hand drum sound be
played than the “slap” drum
sound? How do you know?
Rhythm Wheel (part 2)
1. How many loops would the 1st and 2nd
wheels each need to make so they stop
playing at the same time? Why?
2. If the 2nd wheel does 18 loops, how
many loops will the 1st wheel need to
make so it stops at the same time?
3. If the neck cowbell
sound gets
played 30 times, how many times will
the open hand drum sound
be
played? Prove it! (Assume the wheels
stop at the same time.) What if the
neck is played x times?
Proportionality and Linear
Functions
• If two quantities vary proportionally, that relationship
can be represented as a linear function.
• If two quantities vary proportionally,
– the ratio of corresponding terms is constant,
– the constant ratio can be expressed in lowest terms
(a composite unit) or as a unit amount, and
– the constant ratio is the slope of the related linear
function.
• When you graph the terms of equal ratios as ordered
pairs (first term, second term) and connect the points,
the graph is a straight line.
