Differentiate math instruction with practices that boost mastery for all students!

Experienced teachers understand and appreciate that all students learn and process information according to their individual styles, abilities, and preferences. William N. Bender provides teachers with a wealth of critical strategies and teaching ideas for differentiating instruction to leverage each learner's unique abilities and raise student achievement in math.

With updated information and recommendations based on the 2008 National Mathematics Advisory Panel report, this new edition of Differentiating Math Instruction includes research on the value of brain-compatible teaching and creative ways to get students visualizing, vocalizing, and moving during math to make instruction more meaningful, motivational, and successful. New and seasoned teachers alike will be able to quickly adapt the techniques to suit their specific classrooms, with key features including:

  • Strategies for use within a Response to Intervention framework
  • At-a-glance lists of "Top Ten Tactics" for successful implementation
  • "Web Site Reviews" that outline additional online resources
  • Concrete strategies to tap into multiple intelligences

Engage every student in a deep conceptual understanding of mathematics with this key resource aimed at revitalizing mathematics instruction in the elementary and middle school classroom.

Substantial Content Revisions

While the new edition remains structurally similar to the previous edition, the author made many revisions throughout the text. He added new references to recent research on learning and mathematics, including statistics on mathematics achievement and new studies about the brain. In addition, the author updated the material by explaining how differentiated math instruction correlates with the recommendations made by the National Mathematics Advisory Panel in 2006. The book includes a list of selected recommendations from the panel’s report. Several new teaching strategies and examples have been included, as well as sections about response to intervention. In these sections the author includes explanations of RTI, case studies of RTI in mathematics, and figures to illustrate the intervention process.
