## Reflection: Advanced Students Numerical Expressions and Patterns Introduction Lesson - Section 2: Let's Play

One student was sitting right away.  He explained that he was a lucky guesser because he asked the first person "is my word order of operations" and he was right.  As a class, we talked about the pro's and con's to this strategy.  I don't like to rule it out right away because some students rely on that approach alone, but now that we have played a few times, I will eliminate this strategy.
