Reflection: Student Led Inquiry More Eight Circles - Section 1: Launch

We needed the additional time in class to continue the Eight Circle activity. It took more conversation about composite figures for students to come up with a way to find the area of the shaded space. It was good conversation though because they decided they didn't need the circumference to find the answer. I liked the idea that they determined that on their own.
