Reflection: Accountability Does it Work? - Section 2: Put it into Action


The nice part about having students constantly critiquing everyone's work is that I get to step back and let them help each other.  This student work sample is a good example of a time when other student's caught the mistake in the work as it was being presented and helped the presenting students fix it right then and there.  It also gave me insight into why they'd made the mistake - they didn't see the green line as an upper limit constraint because they weren't experienced with that kind of problem.  It was a great opportunity for the entire class to sort through and build greater understanding of linear programming as a tool.
