What are Math Choice Boards?

Math Choice Boards are a way for students to take ownership of their learning. By allowing students to complete a choice board rather than giving them an assignment, you’re telling them that you trust that they will practice the skills that they know they need to practice. You’re also seeing what they need more confidence in based on what they choose.

The math choice boards that I create are digital and through Google Forms. You can assign them easily though Google Classroom or send the link to your students through whichever learning management system you have. Other ways to create a choice board could be using Google Sites or Google Slides.
