Differentiated lesson going from basic concepts to problem solving and SAT questions. (groups on the whiteboard file refer to the ability tables I have in my class - more sides = higher ability) I have this on the board whilst they work so they can progress from whatever starting point they come in More…at ("Teacher's Toolkit": upwardly mobile)

The flipchart itself is incredible let alone the rest of the supporting materials. Have adapted some of your handiwork. Time, care and energy has clearly been put into this. Thank you.
