Reflection: Student Ownership Line Plots in the Shop - Section 3: Independent Practice


Using what I know about my students, and the relationship that we have, I know a lot of their interests. I try to incorporate what I know into word problems or even computation problems as much as possible.

We have just a few local restaurants in our town, and I wanted to avoid using name brands so I generalized them. You'll see this throughout a few of my other lessons too. By using something that students are familiar with, the students are more eager to attempt and work through the problem if it's somehow relevant to them.
