We started with a board of all the information that we knew. And things progressed from there…we did not get an equation but we started to answer some questions. Students were VERY surprised to hear me say “i don’t know the answer”. They definitely chugged through and we got to a point where they realized we might have to combine the tables and look for relationships in different spots.
I even had a student make a what if question that I thought was basically a win…..
