This morning Mathematics lead us to the great outdoors, our learners were put into the learning pit and was tasked with creating number problems to ten using materials. Each person had to think about their previous learning and then create a number problem and allow their partner to solve the equation by putting the correct number of blocks in the square. Once the problem was solved the learner was then asked to justify/explain how they got their answer.
Lauren and Annabelle created 5 + 5 = 10
Carmen & Caius created 3 + 3 = 6
Lexi climbed out of the learning pit by collaborating with her pairs to solve this equation
Liam too climbed out of the learning pit by taking his time to think and consider his answer
Alem and Rhianna discussed thoroughly the task at hand to gain a deeper understanding
