Video Clips catalog

Watch the videos, analyze what students know, and answer each of these questions:

  1. What did the student do?
  2. What can be inferred about what the student knows because of what they did?
  3. Where in a sequence of learning might the student's understanding fall? What evidence can you give to support that placement?
  4. What activities, from the book, could be used to build on their understanding and move toward mathematical literacy?

Getting Ready: Classification, Number sense, and Counting

Group 1. Preschool counting - counting, number value, place value - How many starfish?

Group 2. Class meeting - counting, number value, place value - How many milks needed for the class?

Group 3. Counting candy person 1 - counting, number value, place value - How many candies in the can?

Group 4. Counting candy - person 2 - counting, number value, place value - How many candies in the can?

Place value and number value 10-100

Group 2. Cena- place value, estimation, number value - circles and stars - Classroom procedural 49, Interview write number 18, represent with tiles, group tiles into tens and ones (24), 24 how get to 16[18], what does the 18 mean? represent 13 tiles with written numerals and what does the written numeral 13 represent in tiles?

Group 3. Brandon - place value, estimation, number value - how many beans would fit in the cup?

Group 4. Catrina - place value, estimation, number value - how do the tiles represent 16 and 21? how do the numerals on paper represent 16?

Group 1. Jonathan - place value, estimation, number value - circles and stars in class procedural count by tens..., interview tiles estimate tens, represent 24 with tiles and written numeral, represent 16 with tiles and written numeral, eyes, represent 21 written numeral imagine represent with tiles. again eyes.

Group all. Rudy - place value, estimation, number value - skip count, represent 24 with numerals, tiles, 16, (24-8=16), 27, beans estimate half jar, count - suppose counted by tens what would get?

Measurement

Group. Tiles - estimation, place value, number value, problem solving - Notice the 99 chart on the wall!

Three videos with students estimating tiles:
(clip 1) Cheeto counts 16 tiles,
(clip 2) class how many tiles in this cup? If it is half full and it holds 99 tiles when it is full, how many?
(clip 3&4) How many tiles in cup? How many piles of ten? (99, 8, 9...)
