Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Circumference and Area of Circles - Section 2: Explore


As the students worked out the problems in the table challenge, I noticed a consistent issue across most students in all classes - failure to identify the key parts of the circle given.  I am not sure if the issue came from insufficient knowledge of the vocabulary, or from lack of thoroughly reading the problem - but regardless, I feel like they need more practice.  Therefore, I am adding in an additional lesson tomorrow: Opener, Smartboard PDF, Smart Notebook, that will provide students with an opportunity for more practice.
