Differentiating With DynaMath

Use DynaMath’s many differentiation tools to customize instruction for a variety of learners. These include knowledge-building videos with closed-captioning, leveled texts, and much more. Whether they’re striving or thriving, your students will get the support they need with these powerful resources.

Videos

Instantly capture students’ attention with engaging, ad-free videos that include the option for closed-captioning. There are two types: 

- Article-related videos make great prereading activities and build background knowledge on topics covered in the magazine. 

- Instructional math videos review important skills and bring math concepts to life using real-world examples.

Videos can be found throughout our site: on article pages, on issue pages, in our video archive, and within each issue’s presentation view.

Leveled Texts

Every feature article in DynaMath is available at two reading levels. Select the article you want to read. If the article has multiple reading levels, the options will appear in the toolbar on the left. Choose the preferred level. The Text-to-Speech tool can also be used to read either level aloud.

Text-to-Speech

DynaMath offers an audio Text-to-Speech tool to assist students in their reading. When a user activates Text-to-Speech, an automated voice reads the article aloud. Each word is highlighted as it is read, and students can control the speed of the reading. To learn more, click here.

Scaffolded Skills Sheets

Reinforce skills with printable activities and assessments that offer grade-specific problems at multiple levels. Each feature article offers scaffolded activities at three levels—on-level, lower-level, and upper-level. “DynaDash” activities provide on-level practice problems for that skill. The difficulty-level and grade-level information for each skills sheet is indicated by arrows in the upper right-hand corner of the activity.

Differentiated Lesson Plans

Each lesson plan in the DynaMath Teacher’s Guide includes a differentiation section. Here you can find a list of the scaffolded activity sheets for each lesson as well as activity ideas, tips, video connections, and social-emotional learning prompts.

Templates

Help students build their conceptual understanding with printable templates, including  coordinate grids, T-charts, fraction models, place value charts, and more to support your teaching efforts and save time. Templates are organized by math skill (fractions, geometry, etc.).
