Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Cylinder Volumes (Part 2) - Section 3: Application

 

After teaching high school for school for some time, I must remember to be mindful of the fact that so many middle school students still need to develop organizational skills. Not all students take the time, or are skilled at making tables and organizing their work appropriately. Neat and well structured work not only helps to avoid mistakes and organize thoughts, but it makes correcting much easier for the teacher.  

After teaching this lesson, I thought it a good idea to create a table for the three candles in task 2, for some students. I actually drew tables for a few groups on their paper, which made all the difference.
