Making Math Matter

Part of learning requires students to own what they are doing. As we learn new math vocabulary, we draw pictures to illustrate the meaning. The last 2 weeks we have been working on addition and subtraction problems. As an adult, we just know what the + and - sign mean. Today we drew pictures to illustrate addition and subtraction. Students came up with lots of different illustrations!  I love to see deeper thinking.
