Reasoning Abstractly and Quantitatively: Dice Toss

This 5-minute professional development video clip shows students engaged in the Common Core Practice Standard #2. A classroom of fourth grade students are conducting an experiment to see which sum comes up most often when rolling two dice. Students use abstract and quantitative reasoning to predict the results of a dice rolling experiment, discuss their predictions, and consider the actual results. Additional resources include a video transcript, teaching tips, and a link to a professional development reflection activity based upon the video.
