Available literature about mathematically gifted studentsí characteristics and developmental needs were taken into consideration while structuring the model. Therefore, this study could be beneficial for meeting special needs of gifted students by proposing an instructional model for gifted students in mathematics classrooms and addressing a way for achieving this aim in mathematics education by filling the gap both in practice and theory.
