Book Description

This richly updated third edition of Math Instruction for Students with Learning Difficulties presents a research-based approach to mathematics instruction designed to build confidence and competence in pre- and in-service PreK–12 teachers. Referencing benchmarks of both the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), this essential text addresses teacher and student attitudes towards mathematics as well as language issues, specific mathematics disabilities, prior experiences, and cognitive and metacognitive factors. Chapters on assessment and instruction precede strands that focus on critical concepts. Filled with suggestions for class activities and field extensions, the Third Edition has been updated to reflect current research and features expanded sections on online learning and family collaboration, as well as innovative new content on multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) as they apply to mathematics instruction.
