Styles and Strategies for Teaching High School Mathematics 21 Techniques for Differentiating Instruction and Assessment by Edward J. Thomas, Pam L. Warrick, John R. Brunsting

One key to raising achievement in mathematics is to recognize that all students have preferred styles of thinking and learning. By rotating teaching strategies, you can reach learners through their preferred styles, as well as challenge students to think in other styles. Styles and Strategies for Teaching High School Mathematics provides a set of powerful, research-based strategies to help high school teachers differentiate mathematics instruction and assessment according to their students' learning styles. Presenting four distinct mathematical learning styles-Mastery, Understanding, Self-Expressive, and Interpersonal-this book offers classroom-tested instructional strategies that can be mixed and matched to reach all learners. Compatible with any curriculum or textbook, the book: - Explains how the 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 With assessment components woven throughout, this invaluable guide helps high school mathematics teachers effectively reach and teach today's adolescents.


I started reading chapters and couldn't stop! I was very impressed. The procedures given in this book will help to maximize the delivery of instruction by adding specific steps to direct instruction. -- Kelly DerzI, Math Specialist As a lifelong educator I highly recommend this book as a tool to improve student performance. Its practical approach to teaching mathematics can be easily implemented in the high school classroom. Educators will find these strategies, which are matched to student learning styles, to be a recipe for success. -- Elizabeth Fannin, Educational Consultant For years, math teachers have complained that none of the examples they are shown in workshops have to do with math. This book is a rich response to that. All the examples are about math, and not just basic math. There are examples and how-to ideas for advanced topics. These strategies help any style of learner understand math. -- Jody L Hoch, K-12 Director of Mathematics The strategies in this book help mathematics teachers differentiate their classroom instruction. The tips and samples show how these strategies can be used with any level of content, from pre-algebra to calculus. -- Linda Kasal Fusco, Mathematics and Science Education Consultant Every mathematics teacher who reads this book will learn new instructional strategies that he or she can easily implement in any classroom. Each strategy is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions. After implementing a few, I couldn't wait to try additional strategies and share them with other teachers. -- Kristin Smetana, Mathematics Department Chair
