Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Eight Circles - Section 3: Landing


The exit ticket served as an opportunity for my students to discuss what they tried to solve the Eight Circles problem. Several groups weren't finished so the conversation was valuable. Some of the questions students generated included, "How do you subtract the shade?" and "Can we just measure the shade"? We will continue the discussion and this activity in class the next day.
