## Reflection: Rigor Water Balloon Problem Solving Part II - Section 5: Closing

When reflecting upon this lesson, I am proud of myself! Often, in the past, when students struggled with a problem solving scenario, I didn't feel that I had the time to go back and reteach. I have to admit that I would sometimes move on to a different problem scenario or to the next math concept due to a feeling of pressure to teach a vast amount of content. With the implementation of the Common Core, I feel that I have less standards to teach which gives me the freedom to take the time to reteach a lesson using a different format. This lesson is such a great reminder to provide students with visual representations when problems become confusing!
