15 Math Starters and Exit Tickets
Beginning each class session with a math starters will help you make the most effective use of your class time. “Ticket to leave” (or “exit ticket”) is an ideal way to end a class.  It can serve as a number of purposes: provide feedback to the instructor about the class; require the student to do some synthesis of the day’s content; and challenge the student with a question requiring some application of what was learned in the lesson.

16 Activity 3: Sample Math Starters

17 Advantages Mathstarters Exit Tickets
Fosters engagement at the beginning of every class Builds math confidence in Dev Ed students Allows an opportunity for students to take ownership of their learning Used a pre-assessment of students prior knowledge before teaching a topic Helps guide the usage of peer tutoring in the classroom Exit Tickets Helps instructors plan the next day lesson Helps instructor informally measure each students level of understanding Allows an opportunity to apply skills to real world applications Brings closure to a lesson

18 Challenges Mathstarters Exit Tickets
Students with very low skills feeling successful every class Instructors uses it to teach a lesson Instructors do not allow an opportunity for students to share out or work with peers Exit Tickets Math Instructors not using the data collected from the exit ticket Using closed-ended questionsinstead of open-ended questions
