## Reflection: Students with Disabilities Which Came First the Chicken or the Egg? Inverse Functions - Section 5: Exit Ticket and Homework: Create Your Own Inverse Function

In this section of the lesson, students utilized an Idea Organizer to organize their thoughts and to continue working on their writing skills in the math classroom.

The exercise is a good example of Differentiated Instruction as it gives students time to process the work and move on as they are ready. For example, for students who are farther along in their thinking and/or have faster processing speed, they might complete the Idea Organizer prior to the end of class and have a few minutes to begin typing up their formal written response to the exercise. For homework, I except students to turn in both a completed Idea Organizer (to demonstrate evidence of the process of organizing their ideas prior to writing) as well as a 2-3 paragraph typed/written response to the prompt.
