Differentiate math instruction with practices that boost mastery for all students! Teachers continue to struggle with the reality that math performance varies widely from student to student and that some tactics may work with one group but not with another. In this practical guide, the author offers teachers a wealth of critical strategies and novel teaching ideas for differentiating instruction, leveraging each learners unique abilities, and raising student achievement. Updated with recommendations from the ground-breaking 2008 National Mathematics Advisory Panel Report, this book begins by illustrating what a differentiated math class looks like and provides guidelines for completing a differentiated math lesson plan. Readers will also find specific instructional practices for a wide variety of mathematics topics and a review of Response to Intervention (RTI) as it impacts instructional opportunities in mathematics for students in the elementary grades.
