I love showing the connection between linear equations in tables, graphs, and equations. It is helpful to see how these different representations show the same patterns. Today I used the Pentamino activity and I think it was a great way to show different ways to represent the same equation. I had a lot of push back from students. Of course challenges in listening, following along and are all part of the challenge in a special education class, however I still was met with resistance to learn or try something new compared to guessing and checking. Students were curious in the guessing a finding the numbers that made the totals, but struggled engaging in other strategies.
