Reflection: Checks for Understanding Proofs about Angles - Section 1: Do Now


At the end of the Do Now, we went over the quiz. I had the students grade their own work and then asked  students to hold up their fingers with the number of questions they got correct.

I did this quick formative check even though I collected sheets to look at the results detail. With the visual check, during the lesson I was able to have a conference with the students who didn't do as well on the quiz about what they needed to better understand the postulates.
