## Reflection: Real World Applications Estimate Products - Section 3: Concept development

As seen in this reflection video, this lesson went well.  If I had to rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 for fun factor, this lesson scores fairly low.  This is one of those lessons in which I wanted to to deliver information about estimation and multiplication , with some time for application, but less time for investigation.  I plan to incorporate some investigative problems in the near future in which students will have several opportunities to estimate and multiply.
