Partner Math - Secondary Style
Partner Math is a great format for secondary students. Students work individually to complete a set of problems and then they check with their partner. If they don't have matching answers, they have to work together to figure out the error.
In this version,all problems are require using the factoring pattern Difference of Squares. Some have a GCF that needs to be factored out first. These are split between the A and B partner.
In this version students match the POSITIVE FACTOR. This avoids students trying to figure out what to do with the GCF in the matching process.
The problems on each version are different. The positive and negative factor are the same. The difference is the GCG.
Any unmatched positive factors should be checked as this is where the errors between the partners are. It is a great way for students to discuss math.
Alternately, a student can solve 4 of 5 problems a night. When they finish, they can compare their answers between versions.
