## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Still Simplifying Expressions - Section 2: Explore

The "Express Yourself" task gave good information on what the students may not understand.

I was able to see some of the concerns in the POD on the chart and I used those to determine how I would address some of the issues raised in the assessment.
