## Reflection: Performance Tasks Wax Paper Activity (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Find equations of Conic Sections

The poster end product has examples of the student work along with some comments I have about the projects.

Overall the students tried to put too much on the poster more than I required. I did have one group that did not write any equations for the wax paper design they made. I will be reviewing my directions to make sure the are precise and clear.

As an entire group I feel I had a lot of data to show what the student's understand and what they do not understand which is what you need for a good assessment.
