Building Systems

It’s always fun to build things that allow for (a) generative responses and (b) flexibility in responding. This “in action” video from our upcoming lesson app on systems of equations does those two things.

Students are asked to build a linear system with a given solution (generative), and there are an infinite number of ways of doing this (flexibility)!

We’re always looking for ways to incorporate generativity and flexibility in students’ work, along with the more typical stuff. It helps make the learning a little more interesting without dispensing with the rigor.
