## Reflection: Relevance Line plot & Stem-and-Leaf Plot - Section 4: Exit Ticket

Looking back at the lesson this year, I instantly recognized that I needed to change the Exit Ticket so that it was relevant to what students practiced in class. Having practiced creating stem and leaf plots, I thought it was better to include a multiple choice question that asked students to identify the median. This way, I would know if through creation of their plots, students would have understood the location of the median. It was also an opportunity for me to see their strategies in locating that number. Some continued to use the longer process of crossing off alternate numbers from the beginning and end of the list, and others found a better solution (i.e. halving the total number of data values). Those in the latter group were asked to teach those in the former group how they solved this problem the next day. It’s a great way to use exit tickets to divide and conquer as well as motivate students and hold them accountable for the learning at the end of each class. Exit tickets should always be graded urgently and returned with feedback.
