A mathematics professional development program for inclusive classrooms
Developed by the Education Development Center and Bank Street College of Education, this professional development program shows general and special education teachers how to collaborate to provide a high-quality, standards-based mathematics education to all students, including those with disabilities. The Math for All learning experiences detailed in the corresponding facilitator's kit help teachers
- Assess students' strengths and needs
- Use multiple instructional strategies to teach specific math concepts
- Tailor lessons based on individual student's strengths and needs to help them achieve high-quality learning outcomes in mathematics and meet the Common Core State Standards
This program emphasizes how the neurodevelopmental demands of a math lesson interact with individual student’s strengths and needs. The authors provide step-by-step guidance for adapting materials, activities, and instructional strategies to make lessons accessible to all students. This participant book includes the handouts and reproducibles for the program. The corresponding kit includes a facilitator's guide and a corresponding DVD.
"This detailed and informative resource provides a neurodevelopmental guideline for planning math lessons appropriate for learners with a variety of learning needs."

Swain County Elementary Schools, Bryson City, NC
"Math for All will directly impact the way teachers observe, reflect, and support students who struggle with some aspect of math learning. It is a multi-layered book that will appeal to facilitators of professional development and teachers, because it is grounded in everyday practice."
—Claire Wurtzel, Director of Professional Development
