Reflection: Exit Tickets Solving Quadratic Equations with Perfect Squares - Section 3: Closure


Here are some examples of students' work on today's Ticket out the Door:

You can see from these exit tickets, most students had a solid grasp of the skills in this lesson.  I was happy about the sequence of instruction in this lesson because it had a good flow to lead student from one variation to the next.  Because this lesson was mostly skill based, I would have liked to tie in some conceptual understanding at the end of the lesson using the ticket out.  The next time I teach this lesson, I am going to add a writing prompt where students explain how to solve x^2-12=0 to assess more about student's thinking.
