I think we all can agree that open-ended questions give us a better understanding of if the students are "getting it" or just "going through the motions". I have run into quite a bit of trouble, because I am in a special education classroom, in that the student’s frustration levels go through the roof, and lead to behavior problems. I am going to continue using them – I just wish that the students had been introduced to them at an earlier stage in their educational experience. Because my class is such a simple version of Algebra (and we are only on chap 4 when everyone else is on chap 6 & 7) I have just started to explore how to add more open-ended questions. My students are currently struggling with the whole concept of “Range” & “Domain”.
Thank you all for the ones that I have seen on here - I have it bookmarked and will be refering back as we advance within my math class
