## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Making a Line Graph - Section 2: Skill Building/Exploration

Because of the difficulty of identifying the intervals with my first class, I adjusted the lesson so that as a whole class we could determine the intervals and numbers for the "y" axis.  Over all, I was pleased with the progress of the lesson.  I saw quite a few graphs that were close to being exact.  The students still need to work on lining up the "point" in the correct place where the "x" axis and "y" axis meet.  Even though they are using graph paper, some students are putting the point on the wrong line.

Sometimes, as a teacher, we must make adjustments for the better of the lesson.  I know that we spend a lot of time planning our lessons, and we want them implemented as planned.  However, if the students are not understanding or mastering the skill, adjustmets are required.
