Reflection: Students with Disabilities Factoring (Day 2 of 3) - Section 4: Station Activity: Crack The Code


Something I may do in the future if I have students on different levels is differentiate the Crack the Code activity by creating a second set of problems for each station that are either harder or easier than the original. I would print the secondary set of problems on a different color paper but make sure the codes are the same so that all students will solve the same riddle in the end. Then I could just assign each student a particular color to complete based on ability.  This would help ensure that students do not check out because it’s too hard or too easy.
