The fourth of edition of Teaching Mathematics to Students with Learning Disabilities, like previous editions, is aimed at helping teachers in regular and special education settings adapt the Mathematics curriculum to meet the needs of students Learning Disabilities. The book reflects and incorporates the ongoing changes in the world of Mathematics. Material in this newest edition continues to emphasize problem solving and real world applications and also incorporates some of the changes presented in the most recent edition of Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (published by NCTM). It is intended to be an adjunct to material used in a variety of school Mathematics texts and provides a number of ways to individualize instruction and practice. To this end, specific techniques, examples and carefully sequenced activities have been included, and in many cases, updated to address the expanded availability and use of technology. The material has also been reorganized to more clearly address some of the sequences described throughout the book. The chapter on technology now includes an appendix listing commercial and shareware programs that can be adapted and used with students who have Learning Disabilities, and publisher and Internet addresses. Other topics include time and money; concepts and computation involving whole numbers, rational numbers and percentages; and some hard-to-learn upper grade topics such as ratio, proportion, integers, exponents, and scientific notation.

This book includes two main sections: a discussion of problem solving and a section on computation with whole numbers. A primary theme of the text is that problem solving sets the stage for meaning and conceptual development with respect to numbers. The section on problem solving includes numerous problem-solving activities that have a dual purpose: the enhancement of language comprehension and cognitive development, and the enrichment of experiences in arithmetic problem solving. The section on computation stresses the use of both traditional and alternative arithmetic algorithms. The latter are introduced so as to provide the teacher with a means to enhance performance in the area of whole number arithmetic in such a way that the difficulties of the student are circumvented. Providing a range of arithmetic activities useful in both the general education and special education settings, the book addresses needs of students in both general education and special education.

Is there a way to get students to love math? Dr. Judy Willis responds with an emphatic yes in this informative guide to getting better results in math class. Tapping into abundant research on how the brain works, Willis presents a practical approach for how we can improve academic results by demonstrating certain behaviors and teaching students in a way that minimizes negativity. With a straightforward and accessible style, Willis shares the knowledge and experience she has gained through her dual careers as a math teacher and a neurologist. In addition to learning basic brain anatomy and function, readers will learn how to * Improve deep-seated negative attitudes toward math. * Plan lessons with the goal of "achievable challenge" in mind. * Reduce mistake anxiety with techniques such as errorless math and estimation. * Teach to different individual learning strengths and skill levels. * Spark motivation. * Relate math to students' personal interests and goals. * Support students in setting short-term and long-term goals. * Convince students that they can change their intelligence. With dozens of strategies teachers can use right now, Learning to Love Math puts the power of research directly into the hands of educators. A Brain Owner's Manual, which dives deeper into the structure and function of the brain, is also included--providing a clear explanation of how memories are formed and how skills are learned. With informed teachers guiding them, students will discover that they can build a better brain . . . and learn to love math!

`The book is easy to read and captures one′s attention. It is dealing with a topic that is extremely important in today′s education community′ - Larry Osthus, Mathematics Consultant , Heartland Area Education Agency 11, Iowa The number of special needs students in regular classrooms keeps rising. At the same time as more of these special needs students are being included, mathematics requirements are being increased. NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) standards emphasize development of algebraic understanding in early elementary grades. This book is designed to open windows of understanding, which will help teachers better recognize and compensate for the difficulties that special education students may encounter when learning mathematics. The author discusses general characteristics of learning disabled students as they relate to planning mathematics instruction. She also discusses instructional techniques and suggests modifications for facilitating these students′ learning. Many of these techniques and strategies are designed to address specific difficulties or weaknesses; however, it must be emphasized that these techniques are useful across the classroom and may benefit all of the students, and particularly those who may not be diagnosed as learning disabled but do have difficulty in math.
