View an extract from the end of the introductory activity from the Steps to Solving Equations lesson used by middle school mathematics teacher Cecilio Dimas. This portion of the Classroom Challenge allows Dimas to determine how comfortable his students are writing expressions and the degree to which they use the distributive property to simplify their expressions. Additionally, it enables him to identify any misconceptions they may have. Watch how Dimas constructs classroom conversations and peer discussion to discover and resolve his students' misconceptions.
