Many students tend to do well with the computational components of mathematics. Unfortunately, the same pupils tend to have difficulty with thoroughly explaining how they solved the problems in written form. As educators, we know that students being able to explain their solution processes are a crucial component to long-term retention of the mathematical concepts they need to succeed in numeracy mastery. This mini unit deals with classifying triangles by side measurement. This study provides a week-long lesson that incorporates multiple opportunities for your students to solve real world problems computationally. Then, it requires that they explain their solution process in in both an oral (Accountable Talk), and a written (Brief Constructed Response) format.
