Dr. Yong Colen, of the Mathematics Department, facilitated a workshop titled “Teaching Mathematics Equitably to All Students” on March 9 and 11, 2010, in Philadelphia.

The teachers attending this Title I math in-service explored ways to:

- Make mathematical tasks worthwhile and engaging for all students
- Differentiate mathematics instruction to meet student needs
- Implement flexible grouping and ongoing assessments in mathematics lessons
- Support purposeful student struggle and identify common misconceptions in mathematics as opportunities for learning
- Incorporate prevention strategies from the response to intervention (RTI) multi-tiered approach in the mathematics classroom
- Support mathematics learning for English Language Learners (ELL).
