Productive Struggle - A Pre-Spring Break Challenge of Exponential Functions
Lesson 6 of 21
Objective: Students will have an opportunity to demonstrate new knowledge through a group presentation at the end of class. They will use appropriate mathematical vocabulary to communicate their findings to the class.
It is a sincere joy seeing the students present their findings to the class! Although the presentations are relatively informal, it is a great and productive way to harness the students spring-break energy into mathematical productivity and problem solving. In fact, I can’t think of a better way to head into spring break! I certainly do not do this all of the time, but any student who was an active participant and group member during the day’s investigation earned points for the activity.
