The lesson gives students a place to start, no matter where they are mathematically. There is less pressure to have the math concepts thrown out right away. It gets students to start thinking and making guesses, whether right or wrong. This usually gets students stuck because they won’t move on unless they feel or are told that they are right. The lesson demonstrates math in its essence…which is what I have loved about the subject. Taking a very simple exploration and show how it can be used to demonstrate very high level of mathematical thinking while giving all students an entry point and now feel as intimidated.
