Which One Doesn't Belong

Students are presented with four images, figures, diagrams, graphs, expressions, equations, words, statements, etc., with the prompt “Which one doesn’t belong?” Students explain their reasoning for deciding which option doesn’t belong and are encouraged to restate others’ explanations, fostering a need to define terms carefully and use words precisely.
