Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Skiing or Boarding? - Section 4: Creating Representations of Our Data

After the group discussion and modeling of making a representation, I decided to a let the kids choose whether they worked but themselves or in a group.  This allowed those who wanted to go with their own idea to have the independence on the task and allowed those who will still a little uncertain to work with a peer.

When I offered this choice, I was surprised by the amount of students who were excited to work on their own.
