## Reflection: Joy Two Step Equations - Section 2: Introduction

I love this activity! Good introduction that allowed me to both build in math fluency and solidify their understanding as they justified their responses. The movement component of the introduction heighten engagement and maximized learning time as students were eager to get their responses up first.  Students loved this activity! They didn’t realize they were solving equations until the very end, yet they were equipped to do so. This activity also helps reinforce the idea of a “one x value” in equations.
