## Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Eight Circles - Section 2: Explore

This was a challenging activity. Having to determine how and what to do is still difficult for some of my students. The goal was to let them determine what they needed to do. It resulted in good discussion as they made decisions about what was important to know. I heard discussion about circumference and whether they needed to know the circumference. Most of the conversation was about actual application and not related to the definition of vocabulary-which was a relief.

Good discussion
