DescriptionAfter the students have worked on the Shirts and Pants Problem in the Shirts and Pants series, researcher Alice Alston facilitates a group sharing session. Jamie and Michael share their solution first, demonstrating the six outfits they have drawn. The researcher then asks if anyone else has drawn pictures to solve the problem and some students indicate that they have by raising their hands. Stephanie and Dana share next, after the researcher asks if anyone has done the problem “a little bit differently”. They show that they have drawn lines between the shirts and pants and explain that each shirt can “make two combinations” when paired with each of the pants, creating six outfits in all.
