Supporting Mathematical Proficiency for Students with Learning Disabilities

Grad Credits: 3    Term End Date: Aug 20, 2021


Becoming mathematically proficient can be daunting for any student, but for those students who do struggle due to learning disabilities, the challenge of becoming mathematically proficient is even more overwhelming. These students may have huge barriers to their success in math such as possessing knowledge and skill gaps, exhibiting learned helplessness or passive learning traits, being diagnosed specific learning disabilities or suffering from attention deficits to name only a few. When faced with the task of helping these students, teachers are often left to trial and error to find what may or may not work for their students. This does not have to be the case. In recent years, there has been an explosion of research studies and meta-analyses regarding the fundamentals for helping students with math difficulties progress toward proficiency. This comprehensive instructional course will present material for improving pedagogical understanding of how students learn mathematics so that teachers can allow struggling students to more fully participate in learning while also providing participants insight on effective strategies they can implement with struggling learners to boost their mathematical achievement. Special education instructors, math interventionists, and others working with students who struggle with mathematics will find this course beneficial. NEW - What does (NP) Mean? Courses Without Participant Guides: we have just made completing your assignments even easier. HOW? We have now embedded all activities that are required in the online course. In these cases, you will no longer need to complete a separate participant guide/workbook for review. In these cases, all activities will be reviewed and graded separately online. Much easier process for working in your courses.
