New and seasoned educators alike will be quick to put the following key features to use in their classrooms: "Ideas From Teachers" sections that highlight actual examples of the differentiation process in action At-a-glance lists of "Top Ten Tactics" for successful implementation in K-8 classrooms "Web Site Reviews" that outline additional online resources for effective mathematics instruction Concrete strategies to tap multiple intelligences Research on the value of brain-compatible teaching is combined with teacher-generated tips, including creative ways to get students visualizing, vocalizing, and moving during math-to make instruction more meaningful, motivational, and successful.
