Most groups came to the correct answer. We have to work more at showing all our steps & explaining all of our thinking. We consolidated with a handout that asked for a table, a graph, and the y = mx + b equation. We did not build the model to check if we were right (act 3) … students don’t seem to miss act 3 when it involves a long building process?!
