Let Me Learn My Own Way
Abstract"Students with different learning styles approach mathematics differently. This article describes how math teachers can help each student succeed by differentiating instruction using the Jungian learning styles. "Normally, I emphasize that by mastering specific strategies, all students can learn in all styles even though one may come more naturally. In fact, school success requires us to learn in all styles. However, the team had noted that many of the intervention materials and much of the curriculum seemed to fit only some of the styles. They wondered whether struggling students might benefit if we differentiated for the styles during interventions. We based the intervention strategies on research that involved filming 100 students as they completed the same mathematics tasks, coding their strategies and reactions, and then identifying their cognitive styles. The results revealed significant differences in how students with different styles approached mathematics (Kise, 2011)."
