## Reflection: Exit Tickets What are Matrices? - Section 4: Closure

The comments on the exit slips gave me an indication of what students were understanding. Many students just said we learned about matrices. For those students I would need to do some questioning to learn more about their understanding. The examples show a variety or responses. Some students gave an example or compared matrices to ideas that were familiar to them. Other students keyed in on certain concepts like the rows by columns. This leads me to believe that the student is struggling with this idea and may need some more help in understanding.
