Reflection: Diverse Entry Points More with Factoring Trinomials - Section 3: Practice


In this section of the lesson I decided to use a differentiated model.  This can sometimes be tricky because the question always arises, "When do you bring the groups back together?"  In a future lesson, I can extend the understanding of the students who were working on the more rigorous task while I get the students who were working on the simpler task up to speed.  That is honestly not my concern at this moment.  I could tell from student work leading up to this lesson that some students were going to need a different entry point to help them develop the conceptual understanding of factoring trinomials.  That was the purpose of this portion of the lesson.  I wanted to give students independent practice at their level so that they could build a strong foundation to build off of in future lessons.
