# Long Distance Relationship Follow Up

## Objective

SWBAT apply their understanding of scientific notation and laws of exponents to review each others work

#### Big Idea

Students love to review each others work.

## Gallery walk

20 minutes

This lesson is a follow up to the project on long distance relationships. The lesson gives students a chance to help each other and collaborate on their work. I believe that students thrive when they get a chance to share their work and explain their ideas.

I start class by handing back their projects, project grades, and project feedback (I give detailed feedback). If they made any errors, then the comments will help them fix their mistakes. If they did really well, I give them extension questions to push their thinking.

Students use this time to review their work and help each other look back at the mathematics in this project. After about 10 minutes, I ask them to take a small index card and write out the distance of their space location (from Earth) and the speed in which they would travel to get there. I ask them to report all of their measurements in kilometers. They put the index card on the tables next to their reports.

This gallery walk has to parts. First, I let students walk around for 1 minute and look at the reports in the room. I ask them to stay with the members of their table (I have 4 to a table) and to pick another report at another table that seems interesting. They travel with their pencil, a calculator, and a piece of paper.

Once they sit down, they have two minutes to silently solve the problem on the index card. After the two minutes, they compare their answer to the work in the report. The goal here is to use the report as a teaching tool.
