      Indicators of Progress
      By Mrs. V on 12/09/2012 - 14:41
    • This is more than a lesson plan. Yes, hands on activities/ experiences are included but also a list of indicators that teachers can use to evaluate student understanding of the concept measurement and of a unit. The illustrations provided are effective in determining where students are in their mathematical thinking and uncovering any misconceptions present.
