## Reflection: Student Ownership Describing Data - Day 2 of 2 - Section 2: Investigation

One of the things I like about this lesson is that it allows students to become the "experts" of some content. I like how they use technology to learn something new and then have to think about a way to share it and teach other students. I think this is a good way to shift the mathematical authority in the room away from the teacher and on to the students.

Students become the experts
Student Ownership: Students become the experts
