The purpose of this study was to determine the impact and effects that teacher perception of differentiated mathematical instruction has on student achievement of grades 3-5 as measured through an analysis of the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP). This descriptive study honed in on the implementation of differentiated instruction and therefore was designed to embrace mixed-method research and data analysis procedures that measured and reported the effects that teacher perception of differentiated instruction had on the overall mathematics student achievement in grades third through fifth within a mid-sized suburban elementary school in central South Carolina. The differentiated instruction research conducted during this study was based on the foundations of Carol Ann Tomlinson. By providing historical theoretical perspectives of how children learn, this study also addressed the educational reform that occurred in mathematics and how it evolved in the way it is taught and learned. The extent of whether the perspectives of mathematics teachers regarding differentiated instruction and its implementation have an effect on student achievement was the major focus of this study. Data collected during this study included the archived results of 3rd--5th grade students who have taken the district diagnostic, computerized Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) test, teacher interview scripts, classroom observations and questionnaire result.... Likert-scale survey items) and qualitative sources (classroom observations, 17 interview questions, and observation of teachersa#39; lesson plans). The sample of this study included 6 mathematics teacher participants and approximately 286 3rd a€“ 5th grade student ... Quantitative data was analyzed by looking at the percent of responses in each survey category and the percentages of growth shown fromanbsp;...
