## Reflection: Advanced Students Playing with the Numbers - Section 3: Putting Into Action

One student picked up on the patterns very quickly and was already trying different numbers on his own before most of the class had finished even five problems.  I'm adding this to my reflections and sharing with you because I want to remember it for next year.  Nate jumped ahead on his own and only needed a little prompting to problem-solve an appropriate viewing window for the graph of sin(100x) which encouraged him to try even larger numbers and to move the large numbers to other sections of the function, like 100(sin(x)).  What I've added for next year is an Playing with Numbers Extension Challenge ready for students who need additional challenges.
