Auckland is still at Level 2.5, which means that you will notice a very different spaced out classroom with students remaining in their seats during the lesson. In this lesson, I took a whole class hands on investigative approach to discovering equivalent fractions.
Reflection: This lesson was a fun way to have the students conduct an investigation to discover a mathematical concept. I feel that my students were able to grab onto the lesson from the beginning no matter their maths learning level and by the end of the lesson, all students were able to understand how to multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number to get an equivalent fraction. I also realised that since each student had their own piece of paper, they were responsible for figuring out the new fraction. Since I was able to see them trying to figure it out, I was able to provide the correct amount of wait time for all students to be on the same page before moving on.
