Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Properties of Isosceles Triangles - Section 4: Summary

 

This activity allowed students to come up with a variety of answers. There was no single correct answer. I like ending the class with an activity like this because students express their opinions and practice using mathematical vocabulary. I am also able to make adjustments to later lessons depending on students interests and comfort.
