Sound Off!: The Myth of Differentiation in Mathematics: Providing Maximum Growth

Jason Lee O’Roark 

August 2013, Volume 107, Issue 1, Page 9

Abstract:
After serving as a high school math teacher in Maryland for three years, the author moved to teaching sixth-grade math. His high school background led him to differentiate differently than his colleagues. The article discusses his observations and his conclusions and offers a plan to implement changes in the way mathematics is taught through growth-based state assessments and truly individualized education.
