Reflection: High Quality Task Introducing Geometry Review and Group Test - Section 2: Group Test

 

This year, I decided to incorporate some of the common errors I have seen in student work into the group test to really force students to discuss their ideas with each other.  I think my favorite problem on the group test is problem #5e, which provides students with an isosceles triangle with vertex B and asks them to decide whether B is a midpoint.  This particular problem forces students to attend to precision and to really critique each other’s reasoning, which gives them an opportunity to test what they understand.
