Reflect: Think about Thinking
"Reflect" in the Classroom
In this component, each student is asked to establish her/his level of mathematical understanding relative to the instructional goal. The purpose of the Reflect segment is two-fold.

For the teacher, the Reflect segment allows her/him to assess how well students are progressing toward the goals of the lesson/unit.
