Math: All Standards
Website that features a comprehensive set of interactive arithmetic lessons. Unlimited practice is available on each topic that allows thorough mastery of the concepts. A wide range of lessons (grades K-8) enables learning or review to occur at each individual's current level.
Online interactive math dictionary for terms with definitions, examples, activities, practice, and calculators.
“Computer-assisted instruction” (CAI) refers to instruction or remediation presented on a computer. Many educational computer programs are available online and from computer stores and textbook companies. They enhance teacher instruction in several ways.
Provides strategies for differentiating math instruction.
Focuses on the six teaching functions that support learning for all students: (a) review, (b) presentation, (c) guided practice, (d) corrections and feedback, (e) independent practice, and (f) weekly and monthly reviews.
Details six instructional strategies and effect data.
eNLVM Interactive Online Learning Units (eModules): Grades 3-12
The eNLVM Project provide interactive online units that target objectives identified as important in State and national standards, include lesson plans, contain interactive online activities, and provide online assessments. Each eModule covers between one and three class periods of instruction. The NLVM collection of over 100 interactive software programs, called applets, is an effective means for accelerating and deepening students’ understanding of math.”
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics offers” (a) a library of online activities that help to make math come alive in the classroom or at home; (b) a collection of lessons for PreK-12 math educators; (c) NCTM’s Principles and Standards for School Mathematics; and (d) links to exemplary online sources identified by an editorial panel.”
Strategies for using math manipulatives to increase understanding.
Based on the findings of a meta-analysis report, seven effective instructional practices were identified for teaching mathematics to K–12 students with difficulty learning mathematics.
One method of assisting all students is the use of graphic organizers (GOs). In this Issue Brief, the authors discuss five topics concerning the use of GOs in mathematics for middle school students with LD: (a) definition of graphic organizer, (b) types of GOs, (c) examples of three types of GOs, (d) key components of GOs, and (e) how to use GOs. Finally, we provide two examples of teachers using GOs from secondary general education and resource classrooms.
Essential strategies for supplemental instruction and when to intervene.
Strategies for addressing common problems, including problem solving, vocabulary, math graphics, etc. (Secondary)
Strategies for math vocabulary, measurement, computation, and more.
Mnemonics instruction links new information to prior knowledge through the use of visual and/or acoustic cues. These strategies have been proven effective with students at a wide range of ability levels (gifted, normally achieving, and those with mild and moderate disabilities) and at all grade levels.
This instructional strategy increases response opportunities for students, provides additional time for positive feedback, and increases the amount of time a student is on-task.
