I am in my 27th year of teaching, most of it with the gifted population. Right now I teach 26 highly and profoundly gifted fifth graders learning 6th grade material. Math has always been the challenge to find proper material because everything out there seems to be teaching procedure. Entree “Factors and Multiples” by Jerry Burkhart. If you do nothing but the first lesson your students will be richer. This lesson starts with a number chart without the numbers but colors--only half of the chart filled out. Yep, only half. The students have to figure out how to continue the color pattern to fill out the chart. Bam. You have just hooked your entire class.
