About this Learning Opportunity

The move toward differentiated instruction in the mathematics classroom represents a significant shift in the way teachers think about and teach mathematics. Today’s classrooms are becoming more student-centred, focusing less on direct instruction and more on flexible approaches to meet the needs of all students.

This session will focus on specific strategies to provide equal opportunity for all students to succeed in the area of mathematics. 

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
