Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

When students explain their thinking in math, it supports them to check their work and reinforces the strategy they used to solve the problem. On Seesaw, students use draw and record to show how they solve a problem, which allows you to see and hear each student's thought process, as if you had one-on-one conferences with every student. This helps you track progress and identify any breakdowns in understanding. How to use this activity: -Edit this template to add new math problems for students to solve.
