  • 4. 5-8% of students areidentified as having Math disabilities
  • 5. Where is the Breakdown? http://www.flickr.com/photos/doviende/403
  • 6. Difficulties may be due to problems with: – mechanics of writing – computation skills – understanding concepts – math fact mastery – left/right orientation – confusing or transposing numbers
  • 7. The technology for remediating and accommodating for Math disabilities is not as well developed as for reading and writing.
  • 8. may see math disabilities in combination with reading disabilities or ADHD
  • 9. Where is the breakdown?Where is the Breakdown? http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3405/3270428419_5e15d6653f_z.jpg
  • 10. Difficulties may be due to problems with:Math Calculations – typically due to memory or cognitive difficulties
  • 11. Students with difficulties with math calculationsIdentifying signs and their meaningsMath fact recallProblems with commutative property(3 + 4 = 7, 4 +3 =7)
  • 12. Students with difficulties with math calculationsBorrowing and carryingMisaligning numbers when copyingIgnoring decimal pointsForgetting steps in calculation
  • 13. Students with learning disabilities with math word problems
  • 14. Reading the problemUnderstanding the language and what the problem is askingFiguring out what is importantImplementing a planWorking through multiple steps
  • 15. Students with math learning disabilities:May have problems with understanding math language and math symbolsGreater than/lesser than, equation, divisor, etc.(3 +4) x (6 + 8) =1,678 > 659 True or False
  • 16. According to data from theNational Assessment of Educational Progress(NAEP), there is great disparity between thelevels of math literacy for students withdisabilities when compared to the results forstudents without disabilities.
