Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Writing Linear Equations (Day 1 of 2) - Section 2: Group Challenge

 

I have facilitated this Group Challenge two different ways depending on the ability level of the class at hand. More advanced students have been able to complete this activity independently in groups of two, whereas classes with students who struggle a bit more complete this activity with me as a whole group. Either format is successful, and help students benefit regardless. The narrative below gives the dialogue for a whole group demonstration, but this activity can be easily adapted to a student-centered investigation.
