Session 2-2: Discussing Pool Border Problem explanations

dev team video


This part continues the focus launched in Session 1 on considering the approaches of others on the Pool Border Problem, specifically:

Whether each approach will allow you to know the number of tiles for any size pool
How solutions connect back onto the problem
How solutions/approaches map onto each other
The language, representations, and logic used in each explanation

Key points

Attending to the ways that others –colleagues and the K-5 teachers in the videos – describe their approaches to this problem provides the potential to learn new mathematics and to further develop your skills for interpreting mathematics.
