There is math. Then there is the word problem “problem.” Applying mathematics to real-life situations or problem solving is a challenge for students with language-based and related learning challenges due to their issues with decoding, prosody, memory, sequencing, and comprehension. This presentation offers evidence-based strategies to help students see the meaning behind the math. Educators learn to create incremental models to help students with disabilities reason mathematically and develop meta-cognitive strategies for problem solving.
