Recognizing Repetition (MP8)

Recognizing Repetition is an instructional routine that supports the difficult road to generalizing problem situations.  Students enlist multiple modalities while they attend to the repetition in their counting, calculating, and constructing processes.  In doing so, they leverage their repeated reasoning to make abstract generalizations, math practice 8.


The info-graphic captures the flow of the routine, and resources below will support your implementation of the routine.  We’ve provided a word copy of the planner so that you may download and print it, or type right into it.  The powerpoint slides may be customized for a specific task by inserting images and refining the prompts.  And, finally, we’ll continue to update the tasks section, and hope you’ll comment on your own experiences with them, and upload artifacts from your classroom.
