EDM Math Boxes
Each Math Box is either: INTRODUCE, REPEAT, or PREVIEW.
Introduced Math Box Pages can be done in partners or smalls groups and discussed. You should go over and review these Math Box Pages with your students as the skills and problems are seen for the first time in this format.
Repeated Math Box Pages can be used as a formative assessment (classwork, quiz, etc...), if done independently. These Math Boxes contain problems that have already appeared and were reviewed in the Introduced Math Boxes.
Preview Math Box Pages contain skills for the next unit and may be used as a 'pre-test' to form small groups for instructional purposes.
Above are charts for each grade level classifying all of the Math Box Pages. This may help you to understand why students may find some Math Box Pages more difficult than others. It will also help you to guide math instruction and assessment to meet the needs of the diverse learners in your classrooms.
In summary ... it's important to go over/review the Introduced Math Box Pages and use the Repeated Math Box Pages as a check for understanding and/or formative assessment.
