## Reflection: Unit Planning Writing Numeric Expressions - Section 2: Intro to New Material

My students don't usually find this lesson to be challenging.  It's an important lesson in my expressions unit, though, as it ensures that my students are ready to start working with algebraic expressions.  This lesson gives students important practice with the language of math; it also gives me the chance to fill in any gaps students might have before we move on to more difficult content.  In many ways, this lesson helps me to diagnose the level of comfort my students have with key vocabulary words.
