## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Roll to Win - Section 4: Wrapping It Up

Wow if I had not had this student reflect on video I would not of known they had this misconception!  One of the main reasons for modeling with mathematics is to give the students a visual model - the number seven is rolled more often because it has the most possible addends with the sum of seven.  He thought it showed up the most often because it was in the middle of the chart.  Checking for understanding in multiple ways is crucial!  Time to do a 5 Minute Math review.  I am going to put the chart back up and have students explain to each other why 7 is the most likely sum tomorrow!

Checks for Understanding: Wait I didn't see that misconception!
