## Reflection: Intervention and Extension Choosing a Method to Find x-intercepts - Section 1: Opening

Some of my students are already familiar with factoring and are ready for some more advanced work. A curriculum based assessment is a great time to meet students where they are. Students who are ready for more advanced factoring can work on Factoring 2, a more advanced set of tasks.
