## Reflection: Continuous Assessment Write It Wednesday Surface Area - Section 1: Launch

The discussion we had based on this WIW was strong. I found out that students don't always apply mathematical terms and knowledge when they solve practical problems. They didn't refer to the surfaces of the bow as surfaces. The surfaces became sides. They did understand the idea of running out of paper and even wasting paper by cutting too much off the roll. This was a good example for how math is relevant outside of the classroom.
