Advocating for mathematically highly capable students (Primary years)

Contrary to popular belief students who are mathematically highly capable or gifted are not a ‘privileged’ group, they are simply children who learn differently and therefore may require a different type of teacher support. This session explores some of the unique learning needs of mathematically highly capable students, and suggests some important ways teachers may be able to support this learning in the regular mathematics classroom.
