## Reflection: Rigor Problem Solving with Quadrilaterals, Part 3 - Section 1: Always, Sometimes, Never Questions

Always, sometimes, never questions are often very difficult for my students.  I designed this task to help all of my students to be successful, while still attaining an appropriate level of rigor. By helping students to structure their responses, this exercise helps the students to recall and compare the different features of the special quadrilaterals. By having the students work together in pairs, the students are asked to communicate, to  reason, and to justify.

If students are struggling with the task, they usually benefit from using their Family Tree of Quadrilaterals as a resource. I find that students who were able to internalize this model have less difficulty with the task.

Always...Sometimes...Never...Ugh
Rigor: Always...Sometimes...Never...Ugh
