Usually on Thursday nights, I try to squeeze in an hour of professional development by participating in a #elemmathchat on Twitter.  It’s a terrific hour of discourse between coaches, teachers, and all kinds of math peeps.  

Recently, Mark Chubb (@MarkChubb3) hosted a #elemmathchat and posted this.

My students know that I love throwing them a “challenge” question every now and again.  I use lots of things that I find on Twitter or just online.  I’m just curious as to what their perspective will be and what their conversations will be.  And they are getting used to me bugging them for a picture of their work so that I can blog about it later.  

Here’s a slide show of some of their answers

These two students had a pattern similar to what I would think would be the next shapes.

What do you think it should be?  Or do we need more info?

 

After this experience, I’m thinking of re-trying this type of exploration with Visual Patterns.

Until next time,
