This chapter:

  • outlines what is meant by ‘low threshold, high ceiling’ (LTHC)
  • considers how LTHC tasks fit into differentiated learning
  • helps you think about the different skills that children develop when working on LTHC tasks
  • shows you how to adapt activities for younger learners.

One of the challenges in the classroom is to provide activities that support the children’s mathematical learning journey and enable all children to be at their learning edge throughout the lesson. Homogenous classes of children, where they are all at the exactly the same stage on their mathematical journey, are a rarity. In fact, I have never encountered one. Thus, the importance of providing a class ...
