Reflection: Flexibility Scale Factor - Section 3: Summary


I never made it to the summary today!  The concept of scale factor took longer for some students to grasp than I anticipated, so I slowed the lesson down and we barely squeezed in the practice work.  The next time I teach this lesson I will probably split it into two lessons - one focused on converting the units, and one using the scale factor to solve problems.
