## Reflection: Student Ownership Candy Store - Section 3: Student Practice

When looking back and analyzing student work, I found that students were really taking ownership of their learning by approaching each problem in their own unique way. For example, here are two students who solved 14 x 25 in two different ways (n x 14 and n x 25) and yet they arrived at the same solution.

Other ways students took ownership of their learning included:

• Adding their names to their presentation
• Modifying the font (without taking away from learning goals)
• Highlighting text
• Choosing how they wanted to work with their partners
• Using the first letter of their names as the variable (such as "d" for David)
• Making comments about the candy types, "Oh, I love bacon clusters!"
