What Can Student Work Show? From Playing a Game to Exploring Probability Theory
Taylor, Merilyn; Hawera, Ngarewa
Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, v21 n2 p32-35 2016
Rich learning tasks embedded within a familiar context allow students to work like mathematicians while making sense of the mathematics. This article demonstrates how 11-12 year-old students were able to employ all of the proficiency strands while demonstrating a deep understanding of some of the "big ideas" of probabilistic thinking.
