## Reflection: Rigor Identifying and Representing Rational Numbers on a Number Line - Section 4: Independent Practice

When I pull together problems for my lesson materials, I am intentional about the level of complexity in the problem sets.  I intentionally start off each section (partner practice, independent practice, and my homework) at a level that I feel all of my students will be able to complete.  The problem sets increase in complexity as students work through them.

As students are working, whether individually or in pairs, I have the ability to differentiate what students are doing in the moment.  If a pair, for example, is quickly finding success with the early partner practice problems, I'll tell them to try a more difficult exercise.  I may tell individual students to start the independent work in the middle of the problem set.

I'll identify the more challenging problems on my lesson plan and packet, so that I am immediately ready with an academic challenge.
