Reflection: Perseverance Adding and Subtracting Rational Numbers - Practice Makes Perfect! - Section 2: Explore


For this activity, having the answers posted was key.  Students know that when I am working with small groups that they should do their best to figure problems out without interrupting my group.  I heard several groups of students have discussions about answers that I had posted, and they actually sat back down and stuck with problems until they could get the same answers as me.  I was really impressed that students persevered with the problems instead of interrupting me for a quick answer.
