Reflection: Student Ownership Proportional Candy Gate Day 1 - Section 4: Student Activity

 

Students discovered that there was a major common mistake that was made among many of them.  When completing the table, many of them did not include the $4.00 fee under zero candy bars.  This led to incorrect responses.  With heavy debate and clear justification using mathematical reasoning students were able to correct their mistakes and move forward in completing the tables as well as answering the questions effectively.
