## Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Algebraic Structures Review - Section 3: Wrap it Up

I expected most of the students to write something about not understanding geometric series because they had to memorize those formulas, but only one person had that as an area for further study.  I'm intrigued to see how many actually get those problems correct on tomorrow's exam.  I also expected most of the students to feel pretty confident about polynomials but to say they needed to study rational expressions more, because most students I've worked with are less sure of themselves when working with fractions so any kind of rational problems is a challenge.  I was correct in these assumptions as you can see from the "study more" and "good at" notecards of students A and B so now we will have to see if the exam supports their confidence.
