Differentiating Math Instruction by William Bender – a Brilliant Resource

10 09 2014

Prior to lending this book to my pre-service teacher I scanned the points I’d highlighted.

Here are a couple which are paramount to the successful teaching of Mathematics, even if they seem obvious.
– connect new concepts to previous learning
– use students to teach groups, revise content, summarise concepts, peer tutor etc, hence adding variety to your lesson structure
– the process of learning Maths is very complex and so requires a lot of motivation
-no answer is wrong, merely the answer to another question
– information presented in a variety of ways is more likely to be retained over a longer timeframe.
