Problem A1

Reflection on the three questions should include the ideas described below.


The fundamental algebraic ideas (content) in this video are patterns that lead to functions and proportional reasoning.


The skills that the teacher expects students to demonstrate involve representing patterns with tallies, pictures, or charts to find relationships between numbers of people and numbers of feet or toes.


Students demonstrate their knowledge of the intended content by drawing pictures or tallies, or counting by twos or fives to answer questions about the relationships.
