Reflection: Gradual Release Two Step Equations in the Form px + q = r - Section 1: Do Now + HW Check

 

This year I am attempting to include more problem solving and translation in class. While fluency and skill work are important, I try to make problem solving just as important by incorporating it at least twice a week in their Do Now assignments. I am including the resources created this year to keep up with that commitment. A combination of the skill work included in the original lesson along with these problems creates a great balance. I gave my students the attached Do Now the day following this current lesson.
