The purpose of this chapter is to provide brief explanations of practices that can be implemented when working with students in need of intensive intervention in mathematics.
Special education instructors, math interventionists, and others working with students who struggle with mathematics may find this guide helpful. The strategies presented in this guide should be used in conjunction with teaching guides developed for specific mathematical concepts. Specific topics covered include the following:
Explicit, Systematic Instruction (aka Direct Instruction)- Chapter 4
•Effective Questioning in the math classroom (questioning was introduced in chapter 9)
•Concrete, Representational/Visual/Pictorial, Abstract/Symbolic Models
•Teaching Mathematical Vocabulary and Symbols
