This episode shows snapshots of Maths sessions over a few days. Our focus has been on measuring using cm and m and working out the perimeter of a shape or area. I tried to connect the learning with real life maths examples (Creating a playground) to help the learning 'stick' and for the students to see a strong purpose for the learning.
This lesson had many parts and it was hard to put them together as they were 'snapshots' of each session. When watching the episode I felt it was disconnected.I found the problem with taking lots of snapshots is that sometimes it takes away from the flow of the lesson. I think I took too much footage from the lesson and it doesn't give a very good whole view of the learning. But it has many parts and ideas that teachers may want to draw from.
