Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding The World's Language: Function Notation - Section 5: Exit Ticket and Homework: Bagels and Function Notation

In the Student Sample Function Notation and Writing  in this reflection, I wanted to point out how writing can be utilized as an integral tool to develop conceptual understanding.

In this particular work sample, the student does a nice job of rephrasing the prompt and understanding what the assignment is asking for. In addition, the Idea Organizer provides space and a framework for the student to make different points and back up claims with evidence.

This sample suggests to me that the student has a good grasp of the day's lesson. In addition, this work sample helps me identify areas for continued improvement, both in mathematics and in writing. For example, writing strong concluding sentences and recapping mathematical ideas is one area for improvement based on this work sample.
