[1.5 hrs- small group, whole class, and one-on-one]
2. Is there any ability grouping or tracking in mathematics? If so, please describe
how it affects your class.
[There are not any ability grouping within our class, but when there is a
paraprofessional that comes in and pulls a group of students who need more oneon-one and small group learning. The paraprofessional takes different students
within that small group at different times so that there is a variety, but these
students enjoy this small group time and it is very helpful for them to understand.]

mathematics instruction. If a textbook, please provide the title, publisher, and date
of publication.
