Problem 1.3: From Lewes to Chincoteague Island: Stories, Tables, Graphs
The examples of student work provide a glimpse into the ways that CMP students use to construct answers. In particular, the examples can help teachers anticipate how their own students may answer the question of how to represent a story as a graph and table.
In small groups, students created table and graph representations of the story in Variables and Patterns, Problem 1.3: From Lewes to Chincoteague Island: Stories, Tables, Graphs. Then staying with their group, the students used sticky notes to provide feedback as they did a gallery walk around the classroom. The gallery walk provided a chance for students to critique the reasoning of others while also allowing them to compare and contrast the work to their own. Here we provide examples of student work produced by students in one CMP classroom.
