Learning is: Computing
Visit Ms. Tatum’s 5th grade classroom at Fairview Elementary School in Buncombe County Schools. This month, they allowed our Discovery Education Community to join them in studying order of operations.
The Big Idea
By completing a series of interactive centers featuring Discovery Education Streaming Plus resources, Ms. Tatum’s students examined how to utilize the rules of the order of operations to solve challenging problems in their math class. Students demonstrated their learning through summarizing and assessment strategies from Discovery Education’s Spotlight on Strategies series. (Canadian subscribers)
