In this study the researcher sought to find how her students perceived guided math instruction in a first grade classroom. She also explored parents’ perceptions of their child’s math experiences in the first grade. Finally, she examined how the teachers in the classroom perceived guided math instruction. Data was collected through student surveys, parent surveys, student interviews, a teacher interview, and observation data. Data was analyzed using the constant comparative method and descriptive statistics. In the end, the researcher found that the students’ overall response to guided math instruction was positive. Most of all the students enjoyed the aspect of choice presented in guided math. Teachers were also found to have an overall positive perception of guided math instruction. Teachers found that guided math allowed for greater differentiation of instruction. Parents were found to have seen improvement in their child’s math progress throughout the school year.
