Join us in our latest podcast episode as we dive into an important discussion about improving mathematics instruction and ensuring accessibility for all students. In this episode, we reflect on the common tendency to focus solely on students who are struggling or behind in math, neglecting those who are "lost in the middle" or above grade level but lacking appropriate support and differentiation.

We explore how we can broaden our definition of differentiation to encompass all students, regardless of their current level of achievement. We also delve into the concept of low floor, high ceiling lessons and how they can effectively serve all learners. Additionally, we address the importance of supporting motivated students in grades 6 to 12 who often find themselves navigating their learning independently.

You’ll Learn:

  • How are low floor, high ceiling lessons serving or undeserving ALL students?
  • How do we truly help ALL students in our multi-leveled classroom?
  • What is the real flipped classroom?
  • When is the best time to use Khan Academy?
  • Why AI tools in mathematics have a long way to go before replacing a classroom experience.
  • Should tutoring be our answer for next level support?
