Second-grade students at Priceville Elementary School in Alabama have written on a hallway bulletin board more than 20 ways to combine numbers that add up to four. The assignment is part of the OnGoing Assessment Project, which uses math teaching techniques, such as having students count dots or jump up and down before answering questions. "This is analyzing and this is what [c]ommon [c]ore is requiring us to do. Our students are not only giving answers, they are explaining their thought process," second-grade teacher Deedee Hendrix said.
