Differentiated Partner Math Practice pages support differentiation in your classroom. Your students can all practice the same content, with varying levels of difficulty that allow you to target their needs. Using cooperative learning structures with these worksheets gives your students a way to practice their skills with others, which can be very powerful in their learning.
This resource is aligned to the Operations and Algebraic Thinking Common Core standards:
4.OA.A.1. "Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations."
4.OA.A.2: "Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison."
☆ Sixteen sets of problems ☆
→ two identical sets of problems per page
→ four sets of problems for each level
→ an answer key for each page
→ directions for classroom use
☆ View the preview to see the types of questions included. ☆
1. Print one sheet of paper for every students in your class.
2. Give each student a half sheet of paper. If extra work space is needed, the reverse side of the page can be used.
3. Each student solves problems independently.
4. When finished, partners with matching symbols/letters on the top of their pages meet together.
5. Students compare solutions and ensure 100% accuracy for both partners.
6. Partners coach/correct problems as needed.
Other ways to support differentiation with this resource:
-Students who need more support can complete their pages with a partner, then partner up again to compare solutions.
-If you’d like students to compare in small groups rather than with partners, simply copy each page twice, so students meet together in groups of four rather than two.
Differentiated partner math practice can be used :
- As a fun alternative to independent practice
- As a review before quizzes
- For spiral review of previously learned concepts
- Prior to high-stakes testing
- As a unique activity for your sub plans.
Depending on the concept, students may spend 15-30 minutes completing the activity.
