Differentiated instruction and blended learning to support student learning in Workplace Mathematics 10
This paper discusses the creation of Workplace Mathematics 10 trigonometry lesson plans for the BC curriculum as of September 2019. The principles of blended learning and universal design for learning (UDL) were incorporated into the design of this project. UDL can increase overall student achievement by providing flexibility and choice for the diverse learning needs of students along with multiple means of knowledge expression. Blended learning can allow more flexibility in the classroom for teachers to target struggling learners and improve student outcomes. UDL and blended learning techniques are combined with best practice for teaching mathematics using implicit problem-solving techniques, peer collaboration, small group tutorial, and journaling. A problem-solving journal is included to encourage core competency development. The lesson plans were added to a website, as seen below, along with video lessons, and supplemental materials. The benefits of both UDL and blended learning are discussed along with best practices for teaching mathematics.
