Leadership to Enhance Mathematics Teaching and Learning for All: Helping administrators and other leaders support high quality mathematics instruction

Differentiating Mathematics Instruction with Quantiles and Technology
Would mathematics learning improve if teachers knew what students were ready to learn? Often, the most common instructional model in mathematics is to teach content, then rebuild gaps. With new technology-based tools, this paradigm can be flipped with a preventive approach to mathematics instruction.
