Public Lesson: Number Operations

In this series of videos (16 clips, 1-10 min each), math coach Becca Sherman works with a fourth grade class in developing concepts of equal groups, multiplication, division, and the relationships among them. She employs multiple models, including the "Singapore Bar Model," and facilitates student discussion, allowing her to assess students understanding of the language and the math involved. Included are teacher commentary, video transcripts, student work samples, and a video of debriefing among colleague observers.
