Reflection: High Quality Task Double Digit Division - Section 3: Closer


 This was definitely not your typical version of Tic-Tac-Toe.  Some students struggled a bit with this game.  I think it was difficult for some to complete the problems quickly because they were practicing a new concept.  For my students that were comfortable with division they excelled at this game and I even saw them put some strategy into it.  They were trying to get certain quotients by guessing which dividend and divisor to use. 

I think was a good game to use for today’s lesson because it fit the different levels of understanding for my students.  The students that were struggling were able to work the problems at their pace and the students that excelled were able to get more game time and practice in.
