Reflection: Student Grouping Subtracting Across Zeros - Section 3: Group or Partner Activity

Working in pairs is a great way to have all students share their voice.  Sometimes when students work in larger groups, we tend to lose some of them because they hide behind the other students.  This is a practice that I find beneficial to the students and me as the teacher. I can hear all students, and they have the opportunity to hear their classmates.
