Balance Benders


I have good intentions of hitting the ground running add term Christmas Break.  A day out for a water line break and our first snowday baffles those plans. 

Today I had students finishing the MAP test, others doing wrong answer analysis on their midterms, others recising their NTI assignments and a group who had completed all.  The latter group, I circled up some desks, said move over here, bring a pencil and gave them packets from Balance Benders!

My instructions… these shapes represent quantities. See of you can figure them out.  There ended up being 6 students in that circle, but it was fine.  Good discussion, critiquing rhe reasoning of others, checking their own work.  Wow.  Excited discussion. 

I need to locate my level 3, these kids will be ready for it soon!
