## Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Comparative Costs of School Supplies - Section 3: Student Practice

By teaching students various methods to solve division problems involving a multi-digit dividend before today's lesson, students were provided with diverse entry points when solving the problems today. Some students were most comfortable with the standard algorithm while others preferred the partial quotients method. During this conference, Highlighters & Kleenex Part 1.MOV, I encouraged students to use different methods, depending on their strengths. I was so proud of this student for persevering as she used one of the most challenging methods: Highlighters & Kleenex Part 2.mov
