A Guide for Ongoing Assessment, Grouping Students, Targeting Instruction, and Adjusting Levels of Cognitive Demand

Differentiating is good teaching. As a math intervention tool, it's power packed. And as a math acceleration instrument it's unbeatable. But differentiation doesn't have to be difficult. Not with Differentiation in Number & Operations and the Other Math Content Standards, PreK–Grade 2.

Jennifer Taylor-Cox's five-volume set shows you easy but effective differentiation strategies that can help all young mathematicians get off to a great start. With it you'll effectively differentiate instruction across all five math content strands.

Differentiation in Number & Operations is the touchstone volume of the set. It introduces the foundational elements of differentiated teaching through working with number and operations. Taylor-Cox's approach allows you to:

  • assess students’ math abilities quickly and efficiently
  • group children by need, just as you do for guided reading
  • target instruction to meet every student’s needs
  • adjust levels of cognitive demand

In the companion volumes Taylor-Cox applies the same differentiation techniques to the other math content strands:

  • algebra
  • data analysis and probability
  • geometry
  • measurement.

Use Differentiation in Number & Operations and the Other Math Content Standards, PreK–Grade 2. You'll bring the power of differentiation to your math teaching and discover the ease and flexibility to help every student learn and enjoy math.
