The Gifted Child Today Reader series brings together the best articles published in Gifted Child Today, the nation's most popular gifted education journal. Each book in the series is filled with exciting and practical classroom ideas, useful summaries of research findings, discussions of identification and classroom management, and informed opinions about educating gifted kids. Anyone involved in gifted education will benefit from the practical, research-based ideas this unique series has to offer.

Given gifted students' accelerated and intuitive thought processes regarding mathematics, teachers need to design differentiated curricula and use strategies that increase the complexity and pace of instruction. The authors provide some specific strategies for both organizing a gifted program and teaching mathematically gifted students in either the general education classroom or in special settings.

Math Education for Gifted Students offers information about how to differentiate for mathematically gifted students, as well as tried-and-true instructional strategies to employ, including tiered lessons, distance learning, and activities combining architecture and math.

Review by: Sue Swift, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School - October 1, 2006
Teachers who use more differentiated instruction and provide more opportunities for their mathematically gifted students will doubtless find, as I have, positive responses from them and their classmates. This book should be a well-used resource for classroom teachers, administrators, and curriculum specialists.
Review by: Lois Spangler, National Science Teachers Association - February 28, 2006
Math Education for Gifted Students will assist educators in providing content with great depth and high complexity. It will encourage teachers to nurture a discovery approach with students, enabling them to explore concepts deeply. I highly recommend this book for preservice teachers, primary and middle school teachers, curriculum coordinators, and administrators. This is also an excellent book for an educators’ afterschool book study discussion group.
