The paper provides a critical overview about teaching children in regular classrooms, designing and enriching curricula for gifted children and using multiple intelligence theory as teaching mathematics by giving several examples. Teaching mathematics or science to gifted children doesn't seem easy because every student is different than each other. In order to eliminate the expected problems the curriculum should focus on many things like their interests, abilities and their needs. Thus differentiation in terms of content, product and environment is the key concept to prevent some challenges in regular classrooms. Also, the paper attempts to look at enriching curricula for gifted children by providing different strategies to teachers as implementing programs such as designing education plan to see their learning styles, characteristics and interests in different areas or using computer technology such as expecting project preparation with individual or small group work. This approach is related with multiple intelligence theory as well which will be used as a benchmark for the last part of this study. Thus, the study focuses on the alternative methods and strategies. Also in Turkey throughout history, education of gifted students has been conducted by Arts and Science Centers (as called BILSEM) and study of some institutions and associations. However, parliamentary questions suggested in 2011 and strategy plan established in 2013 have shed light on necessity of support of gifted and talented students.
