Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Special Quotients - Section 5: Closure


This lesson gave the students the opportunity to do something different.  This was not a new skill, but it was used in a different way with quotients of 0 and 1.  Therefore, I thought this would be a good time to let the students have fun with the lesson.  I was surprised to find that a lot of the students were very shy.  This is evident in the video of a pair sharing part of their rap.  Overall, it was a good lesson.  A few of the students were not as outgoing as I wanted them to be, but they accomplished the goal.   I liked seeing most of the students having a good time with the math lesson, and I enjoyed hearing some of their "raps."
