I believe so… here’s an example for the Learning Target 20: Adding & Subtracting Polynomials. Below you will see the four mini-lessons I made to build the concept and the problem I would use to associate with each mini-lesson.
The mini-lessons are building up to being able to a mixed review of adding & subtracting polynomials like they will see on the test.
20.1 - Do they know how to combine like terms if the terms are in the same order?
20.2 - Did they remember to reorder the terms in order to add properly?
20.3 - Do they know how to rewrite the subtraction problem as an addition problem?
20.4 - Do they know how to rewrite as subtraction, reorder, and combine like terms?
Say a student got 1 & 2 right, but missed 3 & 4. I would allow them to skip 20.1 and 20.2 formatives and start on 20.3. If a student got all four correct, I would still have them do 20.4 (since it’s the ultimate practice for the test) while they sit with students from a lower group so they can field questions while I work with the lowest group of students. There would also be some sort of extension or enrichment problems/activity beyond 20.4.
