## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons

In addition to individual student work time, use this activity to enhance learning through guided math groups, whole class lessons, or homework assignments.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners and ELL/ESL students, we have a few suggestions for keeping students on track with these concepts:

### 🆘 Support Struggling Students

If additional support is needed, provide a multiplication chart and demonstrate how it can be used to find products, quotients, and factors.

### ➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

To provide an added challenge, ask students to create a matching game where one card has a multiplication fact, such as 8 × 3 = 24, and the matching card has a related division equation, such as 24 ÷ 3 = 8.

### 🧑‍🏫 Group Learning

Project the slides onto a screen and work through them as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks or mini whiteboards.

## Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Assign this interactive activity in Google Classroom. Please be sure to open in Edit mode, not Presentation mode. Students click/drag/drop to complete the challenges.
