## Reflection: Real World Applications Use a Bar Diagram and Write an Equation - Section 4: Closure

Providing the students with real world experience is crucial.  If we want them to be able to think and problem solve, we have to make it relevant to their lives.  I feel that this type of lesson is beneficial to the student because 1) they can relate, 2) it makes them think, and 3) they got to work with others to hear their thought pattern.
