Thoughtful Math Instruction: How Do You Know If Students Really Understand?


Professional Learning with Dr. Marian Small

How can we be sure students understand the math concepts we are teaching?

There is a lot more to it than just having correct answers. If a student learns how to apply rules and formulas without understanding why they apply, the student will often struggle to understand which ones to use to solve more complex problems. In contrast, when students truly understand, they are better able to transfer and apply their knowledge to new scenarios.
