Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Review: Expressions - Section 3: Share/Discuss/Analyze Solution


In this lesson, the students reviewed finding rules in a table.  I have always told my students that they cannot put down an answer unless they have tested the rule with all of the numbers in the table.  By having the students test all of the numbers, it attends to precision in solving a problem.  In the past, there have been instances where the students thought their rules were correct, but they were not.  This is because they did not make sure that the rule applied to every number in the table.  I am proud of the students for putting that extra work into making sure their answers were correct.
