Reflection: Checks for Understanding Am I Terminating or Repeating? - Section 2: Activity


Please note that this lesson may not be for everyone.  My students are lower level learners with 2 to 3 years of gaps within their understanding.  Terminating and Repeating is not necessarily within the 7th grade objectives for common core, however this objective is needed for understanding with other objectives. I opted to place this in my course because it posed such a problem for my students with long division.  Please note, review and checking for understanding may take you back and this is ok.
