## Reflection: Speed Dating Rationally - Section 2: Application: Speed Dating with Rational Equations

Immediate reflection after lesson: Speed Dating, video reflection

I realized it was worth the effort as I got some really positive feedback from my students on their way out the door:

"That was fun!"

"I learned a new way to solve these equations."

"______ taught me a quicker way to solve them."

"I liked that. Now I know how to solve these things and I normally hate fractions."

And here is a quick video I captured showing my 7th hour in action: Speed Dating in Action

Time consuming to prep this lesson, but worth it!
