Mathematics for Gifted Students in an Arts- and Technology-Rich Setting
Gadanidis, George; Hughes, Janette; Cordy, Michelle
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v34 n3 p397-433 Spr 2011
In this paper we report on a study of a short-term mathematics program for grade 7-8 gifted students that integrated open-ended mathematics tasks with the arts (poetry and drama) and with technology. The program was offered partially online and partially in a classroom setting. The study sought to investigate (a) students' perceptions of their school-based mathematics experience, (b) students' perceptions of the program we offered, and (c) students' mathematical thinking while engaged in the activities of our program. The study provides insights into the design of challenging mathematics experiences for gifted students, the integration of the arts with mathematics, and the use of technology in mathematics teaching and learning.
