Styles and Strategies for Teaching Middle School Mathematics: 21 Techniques for Differentiating Instruction and Assessment

Edward J. Thomas,
John R. Brunsting
with an Introduction
by Dr. Harvey F. Silver

One key to raising achievement in mathematics is to recognize that all students have preferred styles of thinking and learning. By rotating the teaching strategies they use, teachers can reach learners through their preferred styles, as well as challenge students to think in other styles. This book provides a set of powerful research-based strategies to help middle school teachers differentiate mathematics instruction and assessment according to their students' mathematical learning styles.
Presenting four distinct mathematical learning styles-Mastery, Understanding, Self-Expressive, and Interpersonal-this book offers effective strategies that
can be mixed and matched to reach all learners. Compatible with any curriculum or textbook, the book:

  • Offers research-based, classroom-tested instructional strategies proven to raise achievement
  • 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 the book, this invaluable guide helps middle school mathematics teachers effectively reach and teach today's learners.

The Math Learning Style Inventory (MLSI)
Differentiation poses a special challenge in math. Yet we know that if we fail to pay attention to students’ needs, interests, and styles, their learning will suffer. The Math Learning Style Inventory is the first learning style instrument designed specifically for math students. Built around the six most important variables to student success in math, the MLSI includes:

• an interactive student’s introduction to learning styles in math

• a self-scoring 88-item instrument

• a visual representation of the student’s learning profile

• a reflection activity that helps students maximize learning assets and minimize weaknesses Use the MLSI to build individual and classroom profiles, and bring your math instruction to the next level now.
