    This is an ongoing lesson that the class can go back to over weeks. As you said at the beginning, you may spend a class period doing this at the beginning of the year do it this to set up norms and to show how students are expected to think in this class. Eventually this may be expanded to be part of an opener to look at another concept that can be found in it, such as geometry rather than rate.

    Another difference is that it can be differentiated to the level of the student. Student who struggle may be asked to show one thing whereas students who need to move further can be handed a card or asked to extend their thinking by being asked a follow up question.

    Students are also asked to visually represent their answer in different ways on white boards so that the entire class can see different ways to come at the problem.
