  22. 22. Problem: Find the distance between points A (2, 3) andB (10, 9).Students working collaboratively on a problem to learn thecoordinate geometry topic on distance between points.Traditionally, students were given a formulae to do this.Bina Bangsa School, Jakarta: Lesson Study
  23. 23. Every group was able to use their previous learning(Pythagoras Theorem) to solve the main problem.Bina Bangsa School, Jakarta: Lesson Study
  24. 24. Later they were asked to find the distance between thepoints (5, 1) and (9, 4). They were also asked to findtwo points where the distance apart is a whole number.Bina Bangsa School, Jakarta: Lesson Study

  31. 31. Refine work system . In the lesson planning process, the PLCmembers came upwith a refined worksystem to develop and encourage independent engagement. Photo: Pathlight School
  32. 32. Use coloured paper strips Photo: Pathlight School In the lesson planning process, the PLC membersalso decided to use coloured paper strips. During the lesson, two types ofengagement were observed.
  33. 33. Type 1 Engagement Such engagement is not directly related to content of the lesson. However, students were more involved and were more responsive. Photo: Pathlight School Type 2 Engagement Such engagement is directlyrelated to content of the lesson. In this photo a student used the strips to make sense of the problem situation.
  34. 34. Lesson 3: Rich Observation, Rich Discussion
  35. 35. Lesson 4: Synthesizing Discussion
  36. 36. The team was also hopeful that the paper strips would help students connect the diagrams they draw and the problem situation. Hopefully, students are more engaged when theyPhoto: Pathlight School are doing things that make sense to them.
  37. 37. Would the colour help students distinguish the unknown variable from the constant? The purpose ofPhoto: Pathlight School the research lesson is for teachers to observe students to answer questions such as this one. The lesson planning meetings raised such questions. The research lesson provides a platform to „see‟ the answers to such questions. The post-lesson discussion is a platform to discuss these answers.
