## Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Write It Wednesday-Equations - Section 3: Landing

I liked this prompt because students had to provide feedback about their own habits. This didn't involve me making an assumption at all about what they do when they problem solve. Several students said they did not check their work. They assume that the answer they found is the correct answer. While I appreciate the confidence, I would like for them to form a good practice of checking for errors, just in case. I also want to reinforce the process they are using to solve equations. We may need to do another activity using the steps to ensure that students understand.
