    National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
    For the first time, sessions from an NCTM annual meeting are available as podcasts. Each recording has been paired with an article from one of NCTM’s school journals and, when possible, is accompanied by the original PowerPoint presentation used in the session. They are accessible by clicking on the links below or on the abstract page of each journal article. The PowerPoint presentations are also available from the abstract pages.
    Article: Constructing Complexity for Differentiating Learning by Catherine A. Little, Sherryl Hauser and Jeffrey Corbishley from Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, August 2009. YTA & YEU members can ask me to purchase them a copy of this article by sending me a quick note @ Paula.Thompson@yesnet.yk.ca.
    Podcast from NCTM 2009 Annual Meeting:
    Differentiating Instruction in Math: It’s Not as Hard as You Think by Marion Small
    Applying Response to Intervention (RTI) in Mathematics to Support
    ALL Learners (General)**

    Response to Intervention (RTI) is a system through which early detection, prevention, and support identifies and assists students who are struggling. This session will describe how this approach applies to mathematics and provide an overview on how the system promotes mathematics instruction that enables students to develop an understanding of content. The process of developing a three-tiered approach for mathematics intervention will be illustrated.
    Differentiating Instruction in Mathematics for the English Language Learner
    Mathematics teachers need to provide explicit language instruction for students learning English. By differentiating instruction in mathematics, teachers can plan and provide instruction in mathematics with the goal of providing access to all students. Constructing knowledge leads to greater understanding and principles of language acquisition provide a framework to support differentiating the mathematics classroom.

    Second Look -Differentiation
    Differentiation for Special Needs Learners
    The foundations underlying the process of instructional differentiation for students with learning problems in mathematics. Additionally, the article illustrates its application using a lesson that emphasizes the five Process Standards highlighted in Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.
    Differentiating the Curriculum for Elementary Gifted Mathematics Students
    Description of the Mathematics Investigation Center (MIC), a tool to help elementary teachers differentiate the curriculum for their gifted mathematics students. Using the same mathematical theme that the rest of the class is studying, the activities provide depth for the gifted students by shifting from a computation level to a problem-solving level.
    The Power of Choice
    Infusing mathematics lessons with opportunities for students to make instructional choices is a teacher strategy to differentiate instruction toward achieving classroom equity.
    Understanding the Development of Students' Thinking about Length
    Describes assessment tasks and a conceptual framework for understanding elementary students' thinking about the concept of length. Teachers will learn about student difficulties with length and how to differentiate instruction to reach these learners.
    Illuminations Activity: Concentration
    By yourself or against a friend, match whole numbers, shapes, fractions, or multiplication facts to equivalent representations. Practice with the clear panes or step up the challenge with the windows closed. How many socks can you win?
    Principles and Standards for School Mathematics
    The Equity Principle: Excellence in mathematics education requires equity—high expectations and strong support for all students.

    Differentiating Mathematics Instruction
    What does differentiating mathematics instruction mean to you? What differentiated instructional strategies have you used in your classroom? What are some challenges to implementing such strategies?
    In a general sense, any differentiated instructional approach is based on the premise that instructional approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to the diverse students in the classroom so that students have multiple options for engaging with and making sense of mathematical ideas and strategies. Any model of differentiated instruction requires teachers to be flexible and adaptable in their teaching rather than expecting students to modify themselves to the curriculum program and class instruction. Yet, for mathematics teaching and learning, careful attention must be paid to the mathematics content and learning processes.
    During this webcast, you will develop an understanding of purpose and rationale for differentiated mathematics instruction; relate initial assessment (diagnostic) and assessment for learning (formative) to differentiation strategies; and become familiar with several classroom strategies for differentiating mathematics instruction.
    Check out: http://resources.curriculum.org/secretariat/may28.shtml for more information and to view the archived webcast.
    Differentiated Instruction: Continuing the Conversation
    Featuring Dr. Jeffrey Wilhelm, Dr. Lyn Sharratt, Elizabeth Coelho and Camille Williams-Taylor. This webcast explores differentiated instruction as a means to achieve equity of outcome, and improved student achievement for all students.
