Session 302

Title: Differentiation in Mathematics

Presenter: Susan Tickle, Killarney Heights Public School

Type: Showcase

Duration: 60 mins


Participants will familiarise themselves with Assessing for Programming and Differentiation. Practical examples of how to pre- test, plot data & analyse student results within teachers’ classrooms are given and how this information can be used to easily group and provide feedback to their students. Once grouped into fluid ability levels, various classroom scenarios are scaffolded to show the ways Mathematics can be differentiated in K – 6 mainstream classes. This model takes into account the open – ended and challenging activities GATS students require as well as teaching ideas for gifted underachievers.

Susan has presented at DoE GATS Conferences sin 2011, 12, 13 & 14 and this year presented at the UNSW Differentiation for Diversity Conference.

Target Audience: K-6, Teachers & Executive

Requirements: Nil
