## Reflection: Complex Tasks Define, Set, Go! - Section 2: Guided Practice

During today's Guided Notes, students struggled with Problem 7 and 8.  In Problem 7, the variables were defined differently then the structure the students were use to seeing, and in Problem 8, the variables represent money instead of number of bananas or apples.

The video below illustrates their struggles in further detail
