Reflection: Checks for Understanding Pull the Old Switcheroo - Section 3: Wrap It Up


I usually try to choose student work samples that show misconceptions or limited understanding but for this reflection I couldn't resist posting an exemplary solution, especially because the student who submitted this work has not always been so clear in her understanding.  I believe she definitely benefited from the extra time I took with yesterday's lesson, when I introduced inverse functions and worked several examples on the board.  This student actually copied that work meticulously and asked questions as she worked through today's assignment and this final work makes me confident that she understands not only the definition of inverse functions, but also how to find them.
