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.

A highly practical resource for special educators and classroom teachers, this book provides specific instructional guidance illustrated with vignettes, examples, and sample lesson plans. Every chapter is grounded in research and addresses the nuts and bolts of teaching math to students who are not adequately prepared for the challenging middle school curriculum. Presented are a range of methods for helping struggling learners build their understanding of foundational concepts, master basic skills, and develop self-directed problem-solving strategies. While focusing on classroom instruction, the book also includes guidelines for developing high-quality middle school mathematics programs and evaluating their effectiveness.

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.

Packed with effective instructional strategies, this book explores why certain K-5 students struggle with math and provides a framework for helping these learners succeed. The authors present empirically validated practices for supporting students with disabilities and others experiencing difficulties in specific areas of math, including problem solving, early numeracy, whole-number operations, fractions, geometry, and algebra. Concrete examples, easy-to-implement lesson-planning ideas, and connections to state standards, in particular the Common Core standards, enhance the book's utility. Also provided is invaluable guidance on planning and delivering multi-tiered instruction and intervention.

A field-tested and research-based approach to mathematics instruction for students with learning problems designed to build the confidence and competence of pre-service and in-service teachers (Pre-K-12). Field-testing over a three-year period showed the approaches in this book resulted in significantly improved teacher candidate attitudes about mathematics, increased mathematics content understanding, and professional-level skills in mathematics assessment and instruction. Teacher and student attitudes about mathematics are addressed from the first page, as are other student learning issues such as language, specific mathematics disabilities, prior experiences, and cognitive and metacognitive factors. Written in a clear and engaging style this book is also organized to make it easy for practicing teachers to locate material, ensuring the text will continue to serve as a valuable reference in the classroom as well. "The author has a good overall view of what is needed to teach the target students. The format of the book flows well and gives needed support to each section as needed. ... The rationale for this book is very much in line with the current thinking as I see it for a book dealing with this type and scope of material." -J. Patrick Brennan, Ed.D., Armstrong Atlantic State University Highlights: References national mathematics content and process standards (NCTM) - standards often ignored by special education texts. Pre-K to 12 scope that enhances student ability to diagnose gaps in learning and provides appropriate content connections, a benefit that addresses NCLB's "highly qualified" requirement. Attention to both pedagogical issues and approaches and specific content area instruction, enabling students to develop a comprehensive pedagogical repertoire and strong content understanding. Realistic teacher vignettes incorporated in each chapter that connect to chapter concepts and offer additional opportunities for discussion. "Try This" boxes that actively engage students with the material during reading and instructors can draw on these additional exercises during class activities
