Reflection: Data Analysis Expressions Applications - Can you apply expressions to area and perimeter? - Section 1: Launch

If you read my reflections, you will note that yesterday I was able to assess my student's understanding of area and perimeter applications of expressions - and therefore determined that spending an entire lesson covering the concept was not necessary based on their demonstrated level of understanding. However, I may in the future teach this lesson, or some of you out there might find that an entire lesson on area and perimeter is necessary for your students, so I have chosen to leave the lesson on the site!
