## Reflection: Accountability Verifying Answers - Section 4: Student Practice

I was most proud when students discovered when calculations didn't match up. Often times, these students were Using Verification to Truly Check Work by Discovering Mistakes and Making Changes. I celebrated these students in front of their classmates (in the moment) to encourage all students to do the same! I have found that recognition is one of the key motivators within a math learning environment and one of the number one ways to inspire students to meet specific expectations.
