Differentiating instruction is as important to teaching math as it is to any other subject, and for the same reason: different students have different talents and weaknesses as well as preferred styles of thinking and learning. When teachers rotate teaching strategies, they reach more learners through their preferred styles, while also challenging them to think and learn in less comfortable ways.  

In Styles and Strategies for Teaching Middle School Mathematics, authors Edward J. Thomas and John R. Brunsting identify four distinct mathematical learning styles along with effective instructional strategies to match each one. The four learning styles presented are

  1. Mastery
  2. Understanding
  3. Self-Expressive
  4. Interpersonal

The classroom-tested strategies for middle school mathematics instruction described in the book can be mixed, matched, and rotated to differentiate instruction. Best of all, the strategies can be easily adapted and seamlessly integrated with any curriculum or textbook.

Among the highlights, this book:

  • Explains how the recommended strategies address NCTM process standards and students' learning styles
  • Includes step-by-step directions, examples, and planning considerations for each strategy
  • Provides reproducible forms for implementing the strategies
  • Offers variations and ways to adapt each strategy to meet a variety of instructional demands

Guidance on assessing student learning and assessment tools are included throughout the book, giving middle school math teachers everything they need to effectively reach and teach today's adolescent.
