## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Problem Solving with Rational Numbers - Section 1: Launch

Problem #3 in the opener really tripped a few students up. When I asked students how to find the constant they could tell me to put y/x, but when looking at the graph they continued to put x/y to write their equation.  This was an issue when I originally taught the unit, and I will definitely need to keep using problems of this nature until more kids are successful.
