## Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Stacking Cups: Systems of Equations Real World Application - Section 3: Investigation

My students were particularly intrigued with the concept of a “hint card” and became somewhat competitive with one another to see how far they could get without needing the use of a “hint” card. By doing this, they actually upped the rigor of the lesson for themselves, pushing themselves to get more and more creative and think outside the typical in order to reach their problems. This helped keep students on task because my students are very competitive with one another and I did not need to use anything outside of the ordinary from my classroom to keep students from engaging in off task behaviors or from trying to take the “Easy” way out.
