## Reflection: Self-Graded Rubrics Write It Wednesday Surface Area - Section 2: Explore

This question seemed to tie everything together for my students. They were able to find the area of the different faces then calculate the surface area of the present. Identifying that the present was a rectangular prism was an added bonus for me. The relevance of math outside of school is valuable for them. It takes away the "boring" part. I like showing them that what we do actually means something. They were able to give helpful feedback to their peers because of the applicability of the question.
