## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Sectors of Circles - Section 1: Patterns with Sectors of Circles

Previously, I would dedicate a significant amount of class time to reviewing the area formulas for rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles.  Common Core requires us to shift our focus to volume and so rather than re-teach area, my strategy involves formatively assessing my students’ understanding of basic area formulas to ensure they have a strong foundation for developing their conceptual understanding of volume.
