This page of videos is designed to showcase classrooms in which the NCTM Process Standards are evident. Scroll to video #45, and select the "VoD" box to view the 20-minute Cranberry Estimation video. Second-graders in Massachusetts estimate the number of scoops of cranberries that will fit in a jar. They report, graph, and discuss group estimates with the class as the concepts of range, mode, and median emerge. Observe as the teacher leads the class in developing strategies, learning about new concepts, and sharing and organizing results.
