Abstract

Providing an appropriate instructional program for mathematically gifted children who are in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades is a daunting task. In addition to the routine tasks of identification and curriculum development, there are many other areas that must be considered and problems that must be addressed when a district attempts to meet the needs of upper elementary children who are mathematically gifted. This article will describe why the Dubuque (Iowa) Community Schools felt it was important to develop a mentor program for mathematically gifted children and how a specially developed curriculum not only challenged students, but also helped them see the wondrous and exciting side of mathematics.
