Challenging Work
Gifted students need to be challenged in math.  
GATE designation does not give a student an automatic, "I get it" ticket however, gifted students tend to understand the content more quickly than other students. 
GATE students are in danger of a "fixed mind set" but it is best if all students have a "growth mindset" instead.   
http://giftedkids.about.com/od/glossary/g/mathgifted.htm


Often, the best activities for gifted students is understanding why. Why do certain properties in math work.

Looking for some challenging work?
Word problems lead the way to logic and some test the boundaries of what you think you know. Check out the Math Olympiad's website for their Problem of the Month.  These are well written, hard questions for 4tth-6th graders.  Good luck!
