It’s fascinating to see what the kiddos learn and when. Our current unit is coordinate geometry, but builds heavily on our linear equations units.
This group of kiddos worked pretty dilligently (which is a huge step for them – they are mostly new to the school and groupwork and being a student at our school is a new concept to them). At one point, one kiddo says (en español) – “All the numbers for this question are different. Who’s right?” They were asking about calculating the slope using different slope triangles and, as it turned out, everyone was correct.
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
