## Reflection: Continuous Assessment Equations with Distributive Property - Section 2: Explore

Students seemed to really enjoy the Coach A/Coach B activity.  They liked the opportunity to be the teacher, finding and helping to correct their classmates' mistakes.  Though I was a little concerned that students would not want their peers to know how they did - it did not seem to be an issue.  I paired students with those of similar ability - thus, each made about the same number of mistakes!
