NC.Math.3.OA.2: Strong (2)

I am an Elementary Education mathematics teacher and have previously taught third grade. Something positive about this resource is that it is interactive with movable pieces so that scholars can click and drag to manipulate the math. I also like that the resource uses different shapes on different slides. This resource has both full alignment and partial alignment to the standard 3.OA.2. It is fully aligned in the sense that it does cover whole number quotients with one- digit divisors and quotients. However it is only partially aligned in the area of illustrative and explanation techniques for scholars to show mastery. It only asks them to make an array. It does not ask them to explain their thinking or show the repeated subtraction.

Motivation: Very Weak (0)

The resource does not add much of a motivational element for scholars. There are no points being given as if in a game for getting the answers correct and there is no added benefit other than it being interactive where they can manipulate the pieces. Even if there were an animated character that cheered on scholars as they progressed that would definitely motivate scholars.

Usability: Strong (2)

The resource provides clear directions but if a scholar does not understand the verb "construct" and the definition "array" then the teacher may want to provide an additional slide where they model the directions for scholars. I would also suggest modifying the dividend to be smaller numbers for scholars who are still struggling with the initial concept of division. The last modification that I would make would be for the directions and numbers to be read aloud to students when they click on them.

Appropriateness: Limited (1)

For a target audience this resource would be great. For lower level scholars this resource would need to be modified so that they are provided with an example of an array as well as with the meaning of an array and what it means to construct.
