Reflection: Intervention and Extension ASSESSMENT PROJECT: Writing Linear Programming Problems Day 1 of 3 - Section 2: Investigation


The first part of today’s activity is a scaffold for all students.  Students look back at previous problems and identify key characteristics.  Additionally, students will work in homogenous groups so I can position myself to guide the group I know will struggle with the assignment.  For groups that are ready for an extension activity, I make sure they write three constraints for their problem situation.
