Counting!
 
Today
 
we’re
 
going
 
to
 
start
 
learning
 
how
 
to
 
count.
 
Like,
 
yeah,
 
you
 
already
 
know
 
how
 
to
 
count.
 
1,
 
2,
 
3,
 
4,
 
5,
 
 
Duh.
 
But
 
we’re
 
going
 
to
 
come
 
up
 
with
 
shortcuts
 
to
 
counting
 
things.
 
Like,
 
counting
 
without
 
counting.
 
WHAAA?
 
Let
 
me
 
illustrate.
 
How
 
many
 
lightning
 
bolts
 
are
 
there?

How
 
many
 
lightning
 
bolts
 
are
 
there?
 
 _____
 
Okay
 
so
 
the
 
way
 
you
 
solved
 
both
 
problems
 
were
 
different.
 
And
 
clearly
 
the
 
second
 
way
 
was
 
way
 
faster.
 
What
 
we’re
 
going
 
to
 
do
 
is
 
to
 
learn
 
to
 
count
 
without
 
counting.
 
1.
 
A
 
quick
 
question:
 
A
 
totally
 
made
 
up
 
fact:
 
there
 
were
 
only
 
four
 
different
 
types
 
of 
 
dinosaurs:
 
the
 
Iguanodon,
 
the
 
Juravenator,
 
the
 
Allosaurus,
 
and
 
the
 
Gigantosaurus.
 
Each
 
dinosaur
 
came
 
in
 
one
 
of 
 
three
 
colors:
 
red,
 
purple,
 
and
 
blue.
 
The
 
Museum
 
of 
 
Natural
 
History
 
wants
 
to
 
have
 
a
 
model
 
of 
 
each
 
different
looking
 
dinosaur.
 
How
 
many
 
different
 
models
 
does
 
the
 
museum
 
need
 
to
 
create?
 
And
 
more
 
importantly:
 
somehow 
 
convince
 
me
 
that 
 
your 
 
response
 
is
 
correct 
.
 
 
Comment [sjs1]:
Have
 
students
 
work
 
on
 
this
 
individually.
 
Talk
 
about
 
the
 
various
 
ways
 
students
 
evidenced
 
it.
 
Hopefully
 
some
 
will
 
have
 
listed
 
them
 
all
 
out,
 
some
 
would
 
have
 
made
 
some
sort
 
of 
 
tree
 
diagram,
 
and
 
maybe
 
some
 
would
 
have
 
made
 
a
 
grid
 
(dinosaur
 
kind
 
on
 
one
 
side,
 
color
 
on
 
another)…
 
The
 
first
 
method
 
of 
 
randomly
 
listing
 
is
 
 just
 
random…
 
it’s
 
like
 
the
 
first
 
picture
 
of 
 
thunderbolts…
 
You
 
might
 
miss
 
one!
 
How
 
do
 
you
 
know
 
you’ve
 
gotten
 
them
 
all?
 
The
 
other
 
methods
 
are
 
ways
 
of 
 
counting
 
without
 
counting…
 
talk
 
about
 
how
 
the
 
“multiplication”
 
fits
 
in
 
there
 
and
 
how
 
it
 
is
 
a
 
nice
 
way
 
to
 
organize
 
your
 
data.

2.
 
Another
 
quick
 
question:
 
There
 
is
 
one
 
more
 
additional
 
piece
 
of 
 
made
up
 
fact
 
for
 
you
 
to
 
consider.
 
Each
 
dinosaur
 
had
 
one,
 
two,
 
three,
 
four,
 
or
 
even
 
five
 
claws.
 
With
 
this
 
additional
 
piece
 
of 
 
information,
 
how
 
many
 
different
 
models
 
does
 
the
 
museum
 
need
 
to
 
create?
 
And
 
more
 
importantly:
 
somehow 
 
convince
 
me
 
that 
 
your 
 
response
 
is
 
correct 
.

Ms.
 
Tramontin
 
gives
 
you
 
a
 
multiple
 
choice
 
vocabulary
 
test
 
written
 
in
 
 
 Azerbaijani 
.

Ms.
 
Tramontin
 
gives
 
you
 
a
 
fill
in
the
blank
 
vocabulary
 
test
 
written
 
in
 
Estonian
.
 
She
 
puts
 
more
 
words
 
in
 
the
 
wordbank
 
than
 
can
 
be
 
used
 
 –
 
however
 
no
 
word
 
in
 
the
 
wordbank
 
is
 
used
 
more
 
than
 
once.
 
Fill in the blanks:
Koer läks ___________. Oli ____________ in puud. ____________ Lehmad olid lähedal. Samuti oli ____________.
Word bank:kakskümmend metsa viima ahvide tiik magama magama
How
 
many
 
different 
 
possible
 
tests
 
responses
 
could
 
she
 
get
 
back?
 
Explain!
 
 
Comment [sjs2]:
The
 
tree
 
method
 
would
 
work
 
great
 
here.
 
However,
 
the
 
grid
 
doesn’t
 
quite
 
work
 
well,
 
because
 
we
 
have
 
to
 
go
 
into
 
3D.
 
However,
 
talk
 
about
 
what
 
it
 
would
 
look
 
like
 
in
 
3D.
 
Draw
 
the
 
3D
 
shape
 
on
 
the
 
board,
 
and
 
talk
 
about
 
what
 
each
 
small
 
volume
 
represents…
 
and
 
how
 
it
 
covers
 
all
 
possibilities.
 
Comment [sjs3]:
A
 
good
 
question
 
for
 
this:
 
“What
 
is
 
relevant
 
information
 
from
 
this
 
problem?”
 
and
 
“What
 
feels
 
like
 
it
 
is
 
irrelevant
 
information?”

Ms.
 
Tramontin
 
gives
 
you
 
a
 
fill
in
the
blank
 
vocabulary
 
test
 
written
 
in
 
Estonian
.
 
She
 
puts
 
more
 
words
 
in
 
the
 
wordbank
 
than
 
can
 
be
 
used
 
 –
 
however
 
the
 
words
 
in
 
the
 
wordbank
 
can
 
be
 
used
 
once,
 
twice,
 
thrice,
 
or
 
even
 
four
 
times!
 
Fill in the blanks:
Koer läks ___________. Oli ____________ in puud. ____________ Lehmad olid lähedal. Samuti oli ____________.
Word bank:kakskümmend metsa viima ahvide tiik magama magama
How
 
many
 
different 
 
possible
 
tests
 
responses
 
could
 
she
 
get
 
back?
 
Explain!
 
6.
 
Now
 
compare
 
your
 
answers
 
to
 
the
 
previous
 
two
 
problems.
 
Is
 
it
 
significantly 
 
better
 
for
 
you
 
as
 
a
 
student
 
to
 
know
 
you
 
can’t
 
repeat
 
words,
 
moderately 
 
better,
 
or
 
 just
 
slightly 
 
better?
 
Justify
 
your
 
answer.
 
If 
 
you
 
can
 
come
 
up
 
with
 
a
 
way
 
to
 
mathematically
 
express
 
how
 
much
 
better,
 
do
 
that!
 
7.
 
New
 
scrabble
 
game.
 
You
 
play
 
first.
 
You
 
have
 
the
 
following
 
seven
 
scrabble
 
letters.
 
You
 
have
 
a
 
computer
 
at
 
your
 
disposal
 
which
 
will
 
check
 
all
 
possible
 
arrangements
 
of 
 
those
 
letters
 
 –
 
whether
 
or
 
not
 
they
 
are
 
words.

You
 
will
 
then
 
look
 
through
 
this
 
output
 
to
 
help
 
you!
 
Can
 
you
 
figure
 
out
 
how
 
many
 
different
 
arrangements
 
the
 
computer
 
will
 
create?
 
(And
 
while
 
you’re
 
at
 
it,
 
what’s
 
the
 
best
 
word
 
you
 
can
 
come
 
up
 
with?)

Comment [sjs4]:
This
 
is
 
a
 
question
 
which
 
asks
 
students
 
to
 
compare
 
two
 
quantities
 
and
 
come
 
up
 
with
 
a
 
conclusion.
 
Coming
 
up
 
with
 
a
 
metric
 
is
 
harder
 
 –
 
and
 
that
 
could
 
lead
 
to
 
a
 
good
 
class
 
discussion.
