Differentiated Learning

As a teacher, you have the daunting task of challenging and engaging a roomful of students each year; students who often fall at various learning levels in one classroom.  Geometiles™ is designed to inclusively teach all students regardless of ability level.  Exercises can be tailored to each group of pupils so everyone is receiving an enriching educational experience in your classroom.

How does this translate to a real world example? Let’s talk about constructing prisms.

You could ask students to use their Geometiles™ to construct prisms of different sizes, each with equilateral triangles as bases.  Students can work this problem at many different levels.

Student A, who is just learning what a triangular prism is, may build one of these two models:

Square Prism

Square Prism

Triangular Prism

Triangular Prism

Student B may recall that equilateral triangles can be made from two 30-60-90 triangles. Student B’s prism may look like this:

Prism B

Prism B

Student C, who is at a more advanced level, can be challenged by trying to vary the size of the equilateral base triangle and the dimensions of the rectangular faces. Student C may come up with something like these:

Equilateral Triangular Prism

Equilateral Triangular Prism

Equilateral Right Triangle Prism

Equilateral Right Triangle Prism
