## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Solving Two-Step Equations Lab - Section 2: Explore

It was valuable for students to work through this lab. I think some of my students needed to actually "see" the equations and solve them that way. Abstract concepts are still sometimes hard for my students to grasp and this lab always helps connect what they see to what they can do with the actual written equation.
