Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Writing: Showing our Understanding of Entry Points & Place Value in Dividing - Section 2: Setting the Stage for Writing Well about Division


I differentiated this assignment because of student needs. I understand that math writing is difficult for students, so I wanted to make the problem solving at a level for them that was comfortable. My lowest students needed the pressure of solving a 4 digit by 1 digit division problem taken away from them in order to really think about how to explain the process. It relieved the stress and anxiety of worrying about how to solve larger problems. This proved to be very effective, because I could clearly see that they were managing their work well independently, but it was still challenging.
