Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Mirror Image Review - Section 5: Closure


In this lesson, students have had opportunities to use their skills in many ways. I helped students learn by utilizing technology in a game-show format, guiding students in their GP, "mirror imaging" the GP for independent practice. Then in closure, students worked with each other to manipulate cards to match up expression and language of order of operations and algebraic expressions.

This last section took longer than I anticipated, but the time spent was well worth it. Students were discussing, and had authentic conversations, albeit simple ones, to express their understanding. By physically manipulating the cards, oral conversations, my instruction, my guidance, and viewing/participating in the game show, students have used their skills in many ways today.
