## Reflection: Data Analysis Working Hard for the Money - Section 4: Game Time!

My students had really blown me away in this unit, to the point that they overshot the lessons I had planned! I originally had not planned for there to be a Group C for this activity, and planned for everyone to count only nickels and pennies.

However, because I have been tracking student work across the first few lessons of this unit, I had data points that showed students were mixing coins in the Ways to Make lesson. I knew they needed more of a challenge then just doing 2 types of coins. Thankfully, the Teachers Pay Teachers store I was using had another set of cards that included all 3 kinds of coins, which I mention in the plan!
