Reflection: Real World Applications Map My Path: Graph Points to Represent Problems - Section 4: Closure


The students enjoyed creating a path from their house to their friends house. My students were quite proficient with this lesson, and I figured that they would be. To further the practice, I had them create their own graph. When students create their own graphs they are learning even more. If a student has to explain their thoughts orally, then they have to ensure that their thinking/speaking makes sense to them before they "teach" another student. By using both of these strategies I feel that this lesson was successfully implemented.
