How can teachers meet the growing diversity of learning needs in their classrooms? Furthermore, how do teachers meet this challenge in the midst of increasing pressures to master specified content? How to Differentiate Your Math Instruction: Lessons, Ideas, and Videos with Common Core Support shares classroom practices that help all students be successful and that give teachers the means to honor individual students and meet curricular outcomes simultaneously. The need for differentiation has never been clearer; as stated in the introduction to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, "The Standards should be read as allowing for the widest possible range of students to participate fully from the outset, along with appropriate accommodations to ensure maximum participation of students with special education needs." This multimedia resource offers: 21 video examples that illustrate how everything from menus and tiered tasks to math workshops and multiple intelligences centers can be carried out in the classroom; support for the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics, including lesson examples that focus on certain standards and integrate mathematical practices; Take Action! callouts that highlight exceptional ideas for differentiation and allow a reader-friendly way to access the text; and reproducibles (downloads provided upon purchasing this resource). This resource includes 21 video segments filmed in actual K-5 classrooms. Clips range from one to twelve minutes in length, with a total viewing time of approximately one hour and thirty minutes.

Not all mathematics discussions are alike. It's one thing to ask students to share how they solved a problem, to get ideas out on the table so that their thinking becomes visible; but knowing what to do with students' ideas--where to go with them--can be a daunting task. Intentional Talk provides teachers with a framework for planning and facilitating purposeful mathematics discussions that enrich and deepen student learning. According to Elham Kazemi and Allison Hintz, the critical first step is to identify a discussion's goal and then understand how to structure and facilitate the conversation to meet that goal. Through detailed vignettes from both primary and upper elementary classrooms, the authors provide a window into what teachers are thinking as they lead discussions and make important pedagogical and mathematical decisions along the way. Additionally, the authors examine students' roles as both listeners and talkers and, in the process, offer a number of strategies for improving student participation and learning. A collection of planning templates included in the appendix helps teachers apply the right structure to discussions in their own classrooms. Intentional Talk provides the perfect bridge between student engagement and conceptual understanding in mathematical discussions.

Minilessons for Early Multiplication and Division is one of two yearlong resource guides in Contexts for Learning Mathematics' Investigating Multiplication and Division (3-5) Minilessons for Early Multiplication and Division is a resource of 75 minilessons that you can choose from throughout the year. In contrast to investigations, which constitute the heart of the math workshop, the minilesson is more guided and more explicit, designed to be used at the start of math workshop and to last for ten to fifteen minutes. Each day, no matter what other materials you are using, you might choose a minilesson from this resource to provide your students with experiences to develop efficient computation. You can also use them with small groups of students as you differentiate instruction. The minilessons in this guide were designed to be used in grades 3-4. Some of the minilessons use pictures of realistic situations, carefully crafted to support the development of specific strategies that can be helpful in automatizing the facts. Others make use of quick images with ten-frames and arrays. Flashed for only a few seconds, the images encourage children to give up trying to count each item and instead to use five-times and tentimes as helpful partial products. Other minilessons are crafted as a tightly structured series, or "string," of computation problems designed to encourage children to look to the numbers first, before they decide on a computation strategy. The strings are likely to generate discussion on certain strategies or big ideas underlying an understanding of early multiplication and division.
