Catering for Diversity

Weblinks in the Catering for Diversity section are resources contributed by members of the Engaging All Students community and reflect the research, thoughts and exemplar mathematics curriculum that will challenge all students including those with English as an added language or dialect, high achievers and gifted students or those who have special needs or at risk keeping up with their learning.



Differentiated teaching is a key pedagogy for the Engaging All Students community. Differentiation is instructional design that meets differing learners’ needs and applies to content, process and product. Differentiated teaching provides for a wide range of students. Teachers can cast a wider net by allowing students some control over the level of difficulty that they are working at, modifying set tasks and problems so they allow for more solutions or a wider range of responses and this approach encourages the use of multiple models.


Learning Styles

All students have different learning styles so approach mathematics differently.  The Engaging All Students community will consider how mathematics teachers can help students succeed by accessing the full range of students' learning strengths.

Authentic Learning

Authentic tasks encourage students to find ways of solving rich mathematical tasks themselves. Student apply their mathematical content knowledge and skills to a broad range of real-world problems.

Multiple Intelligences

Howard Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences developed in 1983 has been very influential in education world wide. Gardner proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential. All students will have abilities and learning strengths in more than one intelligence. The Multiple Intelligences theory aligns with the pedagogies for differentiated and personalised learning.
