This task requires students to work in pairs (so homogeneous pairing is very important here because they work together to move forward) to complete polynomial operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication, composition.
Within their pairs, one student is A and the other student is B. Student A completes their problem and B completes their problem. Together, they find the SUM of their answers.
They document all three answers on their partner sheet (last page of document) and bring this to you (or raise their hand, your preference) to check. I only look at their sum. If that is not correct, I tell them their sum is incorrect and they must go back and check all of their work. If they return again with an incorrect answer, I hone in on which answer is incorrect. Provide an appropriate amount of scaffolding in your feedback to students to move them forward.
Once successful, they receive the next card and continue that pattern. There are a total of 12 cards with scaffolding throughout the cards to ensure your more advanced students demonstrate mastery and move forward while your struggling learners can get more assistance. It is a great review or mid-unit assessment of their skills! I print about 15 - 17 copies for my classes when I use this to have a few extras incase kids write on the cards, but you could definitely print and laminate!
If you have any questions about implementation, do not hesitate to ask.
