## Reflection: Rigor Math Scavenger Hunt (Days 1 - 5) - Section 1: Warm-Up

I found that the rigor of the lesson needed to be driven by me and asking the students for complex examples and explanations.  It was important for me to not skip over the explanations with the students.  It is easy for this lesson to become busy work.  Focusing on rigor, provides students the opportunity to construct their own models and explanations to further extend their learning through real world applications.

This rigor of this lesson can be adjusted to meet the needs of your students, including focusing on a specific standard rather than a broad domain.  I chose to present this lesson sequence near the end of the school year, but it is one that I had wished I had used throughout the school year.
