## Reflection: Modeling Writing Inequalites...The solutions are endless! - Section 6: Around the Room

During the around the room, I placed myself at a question.  As students were walking around the room, I made sure that they all came to see me.  I asked them the following.

Scenario: There are more than 100 people in line

1.  Give me some examples of how many people can be in line?

2.  Are your possible solutions greater than or less than 100?

3.  Is 100 included?

4. Write your inequality and prove to me that you are right. (They need to do a check with one of their possible solutions.

It was nice to sit in a small group with the kids to hear them think out loud.  You could use any of the questions as your choice.
