Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Strong (2)

The lesson guided students to make connections to abstract reasoning, and to use the number line model, etc.

Quality of Technological Interactivity: Not Applicable (N/A)

There would be room in this lesson for using online resources to practice answering "greater than, less than or equal" questions.

Quality of Assessments: Strong (2)

Some of the questions on the assessment were challenging; it was not used as a "graded quiz" in our lesson. Students were guided through figuring out the number line challenges.

Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Superior (3)

The lesson linked to many resources to make the lesson more visual and interactive, such as wall-sized number lines and ones for student notebooks.

Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Strong (2)

This lesson invites more "class discussion" with less explicit lecture as students examine a number line with positive and negative integers and connect position on the number line with numerical concepts. Students were able to see -- and talk about -- why -15 is lower than -5... and understand different ways of saying "less than," "lower," etc.
