More Assessing and Monitoring Multiplicative Thinking with Tonda Thompson - Shared screen with speaker view
I think a lot of teacher are COMPLETELY overwhelmed by the whole prospect of being at school right now, so it is hard to say. The virtual process is new to most.

three 20s and three 3s
The 25 was split into 23 and 2, so you could add the 69 and 6.
oops sorry not 23x3
50x3 minus 3x3 I think?
50 x 3 and take off a group
This type of thinking is new to me as I was only taught the algorithm and memory
It's good to be stretched, isn't it Amy! :-)
This type of thinking make so much more sense
If I think about the strips of 3 dots and only removing one strip of three that makes more sense! Now I can see where I made my mistake
What about notating? Do we use parentheses to show that? Because I only go up to grade 2 I do not get to practice this.
Easy to see 100!
I see an hidden area model!!
This can be differentiated by adding the bead rack colors
I would have loved using this in third!
I love those!
Tonda, great suggestions for quick assessment of multiplication.
I love the use of the dots and the structure of the grid
Bridges quantity and area :-)
This connects back to tools used since K or 1
We start with their number sense and build from there,
It's a journey. Time is the secret to success. Let them play with the numbers. Build from conceptual understanding.
SO many rules/steps to remember.....
Can you imagine being a kid and seeing this for the first time and it being you ONLY option... Now you know why I failed at this
Yep-- that's why thinking about it in place value chunks first is what lots of kids do.
Zero is difficult for kids to remember to do and understand.
I hear place value in this video, but our students do not use that language
True Kimberly - they are doing the steps
until they read the answer
This gives me anxiety watching this. Seriously. Still.
Yes and people do not understand how hard it is to go from SA to conceptual/visual thinking
Agreed! So why do we go straight to the algorithm? SMH
The speaker was confused as well. He called the 1 both 1 and 100, the 2 both 2 and 20.
Because there are SO MANY steps
GIve it context that matters
connect it to their lives
What about the fluency book study? When will that start?
Thank you, Tonda! Eye opening video, that needs to be shared
Thank you, Tonda. Always like to be reminded of tasks in the red book.
I love and am thankful for all of the Resources we have been given! I appreciate the time and effort the KCM staff has put forth to make these sessions engaging, resourceful and beneficial.
We make a GREAT team!
I agree with what everyone has said. These resources are invaluable. These sessions have been reaffirming for our teachers. The video today will be a conversation starter in our district. Thank you for all the great information over these past weeks.
As a new MIT, I feel so empowered because of this community and all that I've learned over these last weeks. I'm excited to share with my school community
It is like the end of summer camp....... :(
Thank you all!
Until we meet again!!!
Thank you for everything
