## Reflection: Routines and Procedures Assessment #9 - Section 1: Warm-up

Today's warm-up is a good example of what early finishers can do if the task is well-designed... solve it in a different way!

When kids are done graphing (a skill that exacerbates the pace of work for my diverse group of students), I ask them to see if they can find the break-even point another way.  This student decided to use substitution, yielding the same answer, and further reinforcing the idea that there are multiple ways to solve any problem, as well as the inherent beauty in mathematics.

I also used this student's work as a guide for the type of organization I am looking for on the assessment, which has several open-ended questions.
