Reflection: Student Grouping Division Game With Dice - Section 2: Division Game & Rules


Because this game is not competitive, it is an opportunity to group students of differing abilities. I have found that students will naturally begin teaching each other when their answers do not match. When they explain to each other, it creates a real world context for them to express their mathematical thinking, describing their strategies and using a math vocabulary (MP3, MP6). The students become each other's teachers, with very specific questions and answers generated by their own experience.
