Japanese Lesson Study Summary

Tuesday, July 9, 2002

What we did:

Looked over problems from Problems with a Point. (TOPIC search for algebra, linear functions, distance & velocity) "Did the math" for Don't Fence Me In to see what it was about. Discussed possibilities of this problem for our lesson.

Highlights of Discussion:

We are intrigued by the problem, but if we choose it, we would be abandoning our previous focus on slope. We need to decide by Thursday whether we want to focus on slope OR focus on this problem.
