## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Add and Subtract Linear Expressions Fluency - Section 3: Summarize

The next lesson coming up was to be applying expressions to perimeter and area.  However, I went ahead and put some questions on that in this lesson, and in my summary question in an effort to assess whether the lesson was neccessary.  During the lesson, I did not have to explain either the perimeter or the area problem - students were correctly solving and helping one another.  Additionally, I only had 12 students in my 110 that could not correctly answer the summary question.  Thus, I am not going to spend my next lesson covering area and perimeter applications - I will touch on it instead during the equation unit, where they will actually be able to solve for the variable.
