Last week I used noticings & wonderings as part of our review on volume.  Students had difficulty with the irregular shapes the previous day, so I wanted to help them build their confidence about what they could do to tackle these problems and to gain more information about where some of the students were having difficulty.

Here are some of the slides:

Students were engaged and the contributions were from a wide range of the students.  Although I was disappointed that the noticings did not go as deeply as I had hoped, I was pleased that some of the discussion and problem solving done later that day built on the beginning noticings and wonderings of the class.
