## Reflection: Routines and Procedures The Luckiest Man in the World: Graphing Exponential and Linear Functions - Section 3: Group Practice: Graphing Exponential and Linear Functions

Routines and procedures are an important part of my classroom. Teaching a 90 minute block every other day presents many opportunities and challenges for teaching and learning. One of the challenges is providing a balance of covering content with time to process and practice the concepts.

I try to designate part of every class for students to engage in group work as well as additional time to work independently on the skills. In the lesson on graphing linear and exponential functions, students worked on two main skills: 1. Comparing and Contrasting Linear and Exponential Functions and 2. Graphing Linear and Exponential Functions (Student Work 2)

Providing time to practice skills in groups can help students work with the material and construct their own understanding of the day's concepts.
