Differentiated Tasks

DIFFERENTIATED TASKS

 The tasks presented here are differentiated to present students with mathematically accessible and achievable challenges (see Willis, 2012).

For example:
  1. For sorting and matching cards, two different sets of cards were designed – a set of 16 cards and one with 32;
  2. When asked to draw rectangles, while some students were asked to draw rectangles with an area of 24 or 36, others were asked for areas of 12 or 16;
  3. In finding relationships, calculators were provided to those students who still lacked skills in number work.
