I really like the idea of a productive struggle in my math classroom. I have even tried it several times. After introducing the curiosity I have students go their vertcal white boards in randomized groups. Sometimes there is one student in a small group who already knows the algorithm and takes away the “thinking” through the task for the other members of the group who are at a different stage in the thought process. How can I prevent this without building the groups by readiness level?
