Reflection: Perseverance Leap of Faith! - Section 2: Barbie Bungee Lab


I absolutely need to know my students can approach a problem from multiple angles and find the patterns or differences in each method because it demonstrates that truly deep understanding I hope for every one of them to attain. Mastery of a skill through one method is still great, but I hold high aspirations for all of my students and get very excited when they can represent a function using a graph AND a chart AND a function. It’s critical to their future success to be able to problem solve in this way and really understand a situation.
