Japanese Lesson Study

Monday, July 16

We introduced ourselves to Gail Burrill (sp?), our new leader, and she introduced herself to us. We discussed where we are in the process.

We talked about possible topics for lessons:

  • Visualization
  • graph symmetries
  • rates of change
  • inverses of functions
  • triangle congruence

We chose inverse functions as a topic, and discussed why we thought it was important.

For our lesson we decided to specifically focus on connections and representations of inverses.

We reviewed the four parts of a typical Japanese lesson, and agreed to each come up with a "hook" to begin tomorrow's planning.
