## Reflection: Debate Equal Differences, Equal Factors - Section 2: Investigation

Today's task is a great opportunity for students to practice SMP 3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.  In each of the problems, they have to determine what kind of change they see and explain how they found it.  Depending on the class, I might have different groups work on the same problem and later share out and defend their answers.
