*40 minutes*

#### Launch

*5 min*

**POD**

As students enter the room, they will have a seat, take out their **Problem of the Day** (POD) sheet and begin to work on the question on the SMARTboard. The POD allows students to use **MP 3** continually based on the discussions we have about the problem each day.

The POD today will be a simple question to bring the idea of solving a problem on finding the area of a circle to the forefront in their minds. When they work to answer the actual Write It Wednesday question, I want them to know how to find the answer conceptually and just focus on preparing a solid, complete answer.

The diameter of a circular pond is 54 feet. Find the area of the pond.

Students will work through the steps we use for Write It Wednesday

- Respond to the Write It Wednesday question
- Turn your response in
- Receive a classmate’s paper to critique and provide feedback
- Offer a score on a four-point scale
- Receive your paper and make improvements to your answer based upon the feedback you received

While students are working/writing, I will walk around and answer questions and help guide students through providing feedback and identifying gaps that might exist.

**WIW Question:**

A dinner plate has a 10.5-inch diameter and a salad plate has an 8-inch diameter. How many more square inches does the dinner plate cover than the salad plate?
