Ability to demonstrate reasoning
Different ways students can demonstrate their reasoning include:
- writing, especially about responses to tests and exercises
- drawing and sketching
- oral explanations (individual or group)
- the use of technologies (e.g. interactive whiteboard or website facilities, spreadsheet formulas, PowerPoint)
- showing how cases work
- posters and other forms of presentation that include evidence of thinking.
The activity Mungo Man Poster is an example of a poster.
The activity Writing about Similar Triangles is an example of how students can add written reflections to typical test responses.
