Abstract This paper employed observational and interview data to explore how Gardner's Multiple Intelligences points of entry assist teachers in catering for student diversity within primary mathematics classrooms. Drawing upon a sociocultural research approach the study found that Gardner's multiple points of entry facilitate some 'valuing and working with difference' within classrooms.
