This is an individualized lesson plan in the area of math. The lesson topic is converting fractions to decimals and percents. The lesson includes technology and multimedia components. The lesson also addresses student motivation and barriers to learning as well as student interest in art. The lesson can be used for remediation or enrichment. The targeted grade is upper elementary and middle school levels.
Adapting a lesson for individualized instruction and 21st century skills:
Scaptura, C. Suh, J. Mahaffey, G. (2007, August). Masterpieces to Mathematics: Using Art to Teach Fractions, Decimals, and Percent Equivalents. Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School. 13 (1), 24-28.
The educational need that will be addressed include: 1. access to manipulatives 2. addressing students barriers to learning 3. addressing students interests 4. addressing student present skill level in math 5. providing appropriate instruction while assisting other students at different skill levels and in different subject areas 6. address 21st century skills

I WILL use this plan in my classroom when we get to Fractions, Decimals and Percents (FDP). This is a well thought out lesson with different avenues for the students. One thought for gifted students, use the 8x8 square or other perfect squares for them to create their designs. Students with all motor skills and technological skills were thought of during the lesson.
I normally find an idea on the web and tear it apart to make it useable, then is 5 out of five stars!
