## Reflection: Transitions Practice with Solid Figures - Section 1: Opener

Although this video is a little “out there” I think it was a great tool.  I used it as an engagement piece for the day’s math lesson and also as a way to make the transition into the computer lab a little easier.  Whenever I take my class into the lab there is always a few minutes lost to students getting settled while they are sitting down and adjusting to their new surroundings.  Also, they have to wait for the computers to log on and sometimes that is a longer process than it should be.  So, it was to fill the little time gap with this crazy little video.
