Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Theorems about Diagonals of Parallelograms - Section 3: Activity


After teaching this lesson to my morning class, I realized some students still needed extra help writing the proofs. I typed up a worksheet for the later classes, which guided students who needed the extra scaffolds. These students answered questions 

  Adjustments to Practice: Sometimes additional scaffolding is necessary
