Provide students with opportunities to demonstrate their work and explain their reasoning using the language of mathematics. Listen carefully as your students interact with one another to exchange ideas, organize their thoughts, present their arguments and consider the suggestions of their classmates. These resources provide you with starting points that engage students in mathematical thinking and communication.
Strategies for Teaching Students Struggling With Mathematics
This collection supports teachers working with students with learning disabilities or struggling with math in general. Teachers will find resources to engage learners, strategies to enhance problem solving and suggestions for intervention models. When teachers chose appropriate material and technology that reflects students' abilities and preferences, students have a better opportunity to learn new concepts. Several videos, articles and research reports help teachers with strategies and techniques to reach struggling learners more effectively.
