Carlos and Sara Present Their Solutions

This 5-minute video follows Carlos and Sara, students in Jennifer Saul's third grade class, as they explain different strategies, both mental and written, for adding multi-digit numbers. These children demonstrate effective presentations skills, while their classmates exhibit the established expectations for being a supportive audience. The page provides reflection questions for the viewer and downloadable supporting materials, including a transcript of the video (doc) and problem solving work samples from Carlos and Sara (pdf).

This resource is included in the following PD Collection(s):
Facilitating Student CommunicationThe resources in this collection provide teachers with strategies that can assist them in facilitating productive classroom and small group discussion. Challenges that teachers face are considered, descriptions of the teacher's role are provided, and best practices are discussed and demonstrated. The use of interesting problems and games to promote high quality communication is explored in several related resources. This collection supports the Communication Process Standard.
CCSS Practice Standard 6Common Core’s Mathematical Practice 6, Attend to Precision, calls for students to be clear in their reasoning, calculation, and communication through the precise use of words, symbols, units of measure, mathematical expressions, and processes. Students recognize various levels of precision and apply them appropriately; they calculate accurately and efficiently. These resources are intended to help teachers and math specialists understand the intent and scope of MP 6 and plan for successful attainment in the classroom. A companion Classroom collection, Implementing CCSS Practice Standard 6, includes resources to help teachers foster this practice with their students.
