Wondering why teachers need to provide opportunities for students to understand the math they are doing and the computation decisions they are making when doing story problems? Then this video is for you! Robert Kaplinsky does an outstanding job interviewing students and documenting the thinking they do as they make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. When you get done watching this, you’ll want to work harder at giving children opportunities to learn rather than just telling them tips and tricks on how to get the correct answer!
