## Reflection: Complex Tasks The Factor Game - Section 3: Student Practice

Today, I was so proud of my students for quickly adapting to changes. It's difficult to learn one version of a game and then to be asked to play another version! However, this switch also required students to persevere and to truly think about how their strategies might change with different rules! If I was to teach this lesson again, I would skip teaching Version A of the factor game and simply teach Version B!

Overall, most students were successful playing both versions of this game!
