## Reflection: Complex Tasks Graphing Parallel and Perpendicular Lines (Day 2 of 2) - Section 3: Partner Activity

The Rectangle Investigation is a good activity that forces students to apply their knowledge of parallel and perpendicular lines.  For this lesson I gave very clear notes and practice up front and then backed off for the activity.  I did not give students much guidance, I instead pushed them to rewrite their responses until they were correct and made sense. By continuing to put the onus back on the students I ensure that they fully grasp the content and can apply it to unique problems.  I was also able to use this assignment with older students as a Do Now as it reinforces both algebra and geometry skills.
