Differentiated Instructional Strategies for the Math Classroom- Chapter Summary
If you need to recall specifics about differentiated instructional strategies for the math classroom, take a closer look at the materials offered in this chapter. Our instructors provide clear recaps on related topics, helping you get reacquainted with major concepts and terminology. Some of the topics covered in this chapter include:
- Designing math lessons for ELL students
- Implementing guided math lessons
- Using differentiated instruction to reach at-risk learners
- Shaping the learning environment to fit student needs
- Strategies for blended learning
- Building inclusive environments for math learning
Going over these differentiated instructional strategies can help math educators recall different techniques for improving classroom instruction, and these lessons may also help individuals prepare for upcoming certification exams. To use these tools effectively, you must first determine what you need. For instance, if you are extremely familiar with these strategies, you may just need to review terms and concepts to get the information fresh in your mind. You can do so by skimming through the lessons, or by using our lesson quizzes and chapter exams.
If you haven't gone over this information in a while, you may need more than just a simple review. Start out by opening the first lesson in the chapter. Read through the materials carefully to re-familiarize yourself with these concepts. You can go through the lessons one by one in order, or you can skip around. Plus, our materials are available online all the time, and you can go through them repeatedly until you are confident that you have mastered the information.
1. Differentiation of Instruction in Teaching Mathematics
Discover ways you can implement differentiated mathematics instruction in your classroom! This lesson will teach you multiple strategies that can improve the quality of instruction for all learners.
2. Teaching Math to ELL Students
Teaching math to ELL students can be challenging but fun for any educator. This lesson provides information about English language learners, provides suggestions for the class environment, and offers new math-teaching strategies.
3. Guided Math as Differentiated Instruction
Teaching math concepts to students at different levels of understanding can be challenging. This lesson defines guided math and differentiated instruction, and describes how to incorporate the concepts into classroom lessons.
4. Teaching & Reaching At-Risk Students
Part of being a good teacher is knowing how to reach as many students as possible. This lesson will help you think about what it means to call a student at-risk, and how you can best work with students who get labeled that way.
5. Differentiated Instruction: Adapting the Learning Environment for Students
Differentiated instruction is a great strategy that teachers use to accommodate a wide variety of learning needs. In this lesson, we discuss differentiated instruction and identify which aspects of the classroom can be differentiated.
6. Blended Learning Strategies
Many schools are incorporating blended learning into their curriculum. In this lesson, you'll learn the definition of blended learning and strategies for fostering a blended learning environment.
7. Creating an Inclusive Math Learning Environment
In this lesson, we will explore the components and requirements of creating an inclusive math learning environment. We will also review research-based strategies.
