Students are not using the mathematical language clearly and cofidently (half & quarter, altogether & take away & left with). I need to focus on this so they can confidently use the language and apply them correctly using diagrams.
Indicators of progress
1. confidently use mathematical language to explain their thinking.
2. explain how they solve a mathematical problem using an ipad independently
3. solve a mathematical problem independently
4. continue working confidently
Goal was achieved by some of my target students while others are still struggling to sue the mathematical language correctly in a sentence. They are all able to provide the correct word most of the time but very hard to explain their thinking clearly using those mathematical language.
