Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Scale Factor - Fluency Practice - Section 2: Explore


Yesterday students really struggled with this concept, and I went home feeling a little discouraged. However, I thought it was really important to stick with and maintain the high expectations that students can and will learn the concept.  Today went much better.  Students struggled at first, but I really took a tough love approach and put it on the table that they had to try. Although I heavily monitored their progress, I did not offer assistance to any tables until they had tried the problem at least twice and still did not feel that their answer was reasonable...shocker - once I put that rule in place, they figured it out!
