Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Solving Equations with a Partner - Section 1: Launch


This was such a rich discussion. Students were sold on their ideas of how to set up the problem and it took considerable convincing to change perspectives. I didn't offer a great deal to the conversation. I just listened and helped write down what they were saying. It did take a while longer than I planned but because we were moving forward I just adjusted the rest of the period. It was exciting to watch them work it out.
