Learning is: Exposing Misconceptions in Math

Learning is: Exposing Misconceptions in Math

Visit Mrs Harach’s  grade 7 class in Spruce Grove, Alberta Canada. This month, they allowed our Discovery Education Community to join them in using an SOS in their Math class

The Big Idea

Mrs Harach uses Discovery Education’s SOS  to facilitate student learning in Structures Mathematics. Students have utilized the strategy, “Three Truths and a Lie” in other context and today they are using it to explore misconceptions in Math, specifically around fractions.

Step Inside

Learn more by stepping into a 360-degree view of Mrs Harach’s classroom. Here are tips to maximize the experience:

    • After launching the 360-degree image, spin your view to find the pin that showing the “i” icon. Play the embedded video to meet Mrs Harach as she explains the lesson.
    • Click on any pin. While they are numbered, it is not critical to follow them in order. Each pin represents various elements and aspects of the lesson as well as student work.

View the 360 Experience in a separate tab here.
