They eventually got them into two rows, facing each other.

I told the class that they would be speed dating this morning, which caused a few raised eyebrows. I gave each student a piece of paper (half of an 8.5" by 11" sheet) upon which was written a quadratic expression.

Some of the questions were tough, but they really worked well together!

Number 1 was very easy, while number 6 was quite challenging for the students.

I let them figure it out on their own, then encourage them to write out the steps. It would be great for them to come up with their own and share with others. This year, after I did a few of these, I shared with them my three rules for solving equations, which I modified from Glenn’s blog.

I had them make up a CRAZY equation by letting kids just shout out numbers and operations, and then challenged them to write all of the steps to get back to x. It took up the entire board to “undo” and was AWESOME.

Beyond just getting more practice, we focused on noticing.
