Teaching the Gifted and Talented in the Mathematics Classroom.
Bartkovich, Kevin G.; George, William C.
As part of the "Educating Gifted and Talented Students" series, the booklet offers strategies for teaching mathematics to gifted and talented students. Methods for identifying mathematical ability are reviewed and a two stage method of identification is highlighted which involves screening students in an already chosen grade through two different measures of mathematical aptitude. General approaches are considered, including enrichment, busy work, general academic enrichment and cultural enrichment, specific academic enrichment, and educational acceleration.. Detailed are procedures for implementing teaching strategies--fast paced mathematics class and individualized classroom approach--found successful in the Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth. Also addressed are program evaluation, teacher selection, textbook selection, and other accelerative options. (SBH)
