Math for All: Differentiating Math Instruction

Though I do not typically support products, the presentation that LuAnn Weynard developed for Math Solutions deserves consideration. One strategy that she discusses at length is scaffolding. She recommends scaffolding in one of the following six areas: teaching strategies, questioning strategies, student collaboration, whole-group discussions, making connections explicit, and graphic organizers.

Another strategy she discusses is Casting a Wider Net. A variety of question examples are provided in which students are given open tasks, control of the difficulty of the question, and offering number stories with answers in which students create their own problem to solve.
