Mary Gfeller and Noyce Scholar Morgan Barnett

Mary Gfeller, Mathematics Department, and SUNY Cortland Noyce Scholar Morgan Barnett, presented the workshop session “Creating Successful Tiered Lessons for the Mathematics Classroom” on Oct. 15 at the Noyce Northeast Regional Conference in Philadelphia, Pa. Using Marian Small’s book, More Good Questions, participants examined the process of creating parallel mathematics tasks in tiered lessons for diverse learners. Gfeller and Barnett shared their own experiences using tiered lessons, including how to overcome the most common problems teachers may encounter. Participants had the opportunity to brainstorm and share their ideas on how to differentiate with less difficulty and greater success.
