For CMP3, Moving Straight Ahead, Investigation 2.

This video focuses on episodes in a classroom, showing a teacher handling homework and the development of student-generated definitions. The focus questions are on the purposes behind the teacher's decision to handle homework and vocabulary in ways seen on the video.

The clips come from the exploration of Moving Straight Ahead, Investigation 2.

As you view the video, consider the following:

  • What is the evidence of students’ understanding and reasoning? What prior understandings do you see students using or building upon?
  • What is the evidence of students’ use of the mathematical practices from the Common Core State Standards? To what extent are students growing in their sophistication of their use of the practices?
  • How is the teacher facilitating the development of students’ understanding and reasoning through the use of homework and vocabulary?
