Talking About Math

February 18, 2011

I love to get video footage during classroom activities. It’s great to hear what students have to say, and I really enjoy listening to them explaining their learning. During math centres today, I took short video clips of three students explaining “symmetry.”

How would your child define symmetry? What objects can you think of that are symmetrical? Please help us learn together!

  1. Dear students of Miss Dunsiger's class,

    Thank you for sharing your drawings and explaining so clearly what symmetry means. I learned a lot, which means you are teachers too!

  2. Thanks Mr. Fahs! I'll share your comment with my students tomorrow. They'll be thrilled!

  3. Lovely symmetry art. I wonder how many symmetrical things can be found in nature.
