Review by: Luis Lima, Mathematics Teacher - January 1, 2008
This guide is essential for those involved in educating mathematically gifted students and a valuable reference for all those involved in educating students of varied ability levels.
Review by: Sue Vohrer, Teaching Children Mathematics - January 1, 2007
This book would be a wonderful resource for any teacher who needs to provide differentiated instruction for gifted students or for any parent who needs to be an advocate for his or her child. Another one of the book's strengths is that it is written in a reader-friendly fashion, so busy teachers will find it more of a handbook than a textbook. For example, if a teacher is looking for an assessment for a new child, the educational assessment chapter has a summary of the many tests that may be used to identify mathematically talented youth. This book certainly has a place on the professional development shelf.
Review by: Paige Larson, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School - August 1, 2006
The book is easy to navigate. The charts and lists are comprehensive and summarize the text. Each chapter begins with a summary of key points and ends with a short conclusion that makes it easy for educators to find information . . . This book should be in the reference library of every school.
