## Reflection: High Quality Task Black Friday Blowout (Summative Assessment) - Section 2: Student Activity

My students surprised me in a great way.  They showed that they could draw upon MP 1 finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, many of them. LOL! They were so drawn into the idea of Black Friday, they were sold! They were telling me as I walked to check for understanding, "Let me keep trying, and I will call you when I need you."  Well, one student did.  This was a milestone for me.  I was so excited that someone showed me they wanted to grapple through the problem before they asked me for help.  I was so excited to see the group interaction, the rich mathematical discussions.  Students drew upon MP 5, breaking out their interactive notebooks, and using their notes taken to help solve this very involved performance task.  This did take us about 4 solid days to complete, but worth every day!
