Reflection: Checks for Understanding Graphing Proportional Relationships - Fluency Practice - Section 3: Summary

This lesson did not start smoothly in terms of correct answers.  I was all over the room pinging from one group to another providing assistance through questioning (I don't EVER help during a game, I only step in after I have looked for correct answers).  Asking students questions like "what always goes on top?" or "have you written down your coordinates" really helped zone students in on what was important.  As the class progressed I was able to step back and groups began to have good discussion that led to correct answers. When I got to the table discussion at the end, I had all tables write down their responses on their white boards so that I could see all answers at once, not just a few.  All tables in each of my classes correctly held up something along the lines of find the ratio of y to x.  So, class certainly ended on a high :)
