Reflection: Student Grouping Graphing Absolute Value Functions (Day 2 of 2) - Section 3: Group Activity: Matching

 

While most students worked on the matching activity, I chose to pull some students into small groups to review with me. This student review of graphing in this lesson helped reinforce student understanding and allowing me to catch remaining misconceptions. While in the small group, I was able to conduct a brief reteach then allow students extra time to work on the guided practice. The student led small group proved to be a valuable exchange of students explaining their thinking.


Extenstion → Show students how to graph functions on a graphing calculator. Show students how to change the visual appearance of the line on the calculate to compare the two. The use of the ferris wheel example gave students another point of reference for this concepts as well as provide real world application.
