When prompted on the video to pause, stop the video while students are working. I have prepared an answer key for the calculations for the math tasks. Students are able to work with a partner, however, if the partners are talking without working, then the talkers need to work alone. All explanations and examples are in the video. Monitor the students as they are working and answer any questions that might arise. I have also included a sample of the exit ticket.
