A student who is confused by typical math instruction may excel when instructed in a way that always shows the big picture first, uses visual-spatial images, and directly examines how the parts are connected to the whole. Number sense is developed by establishing a robust understanding of quantities so their values may be compared. In essence, students take patterns apart and then reassemble them while describing the process.
TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Identify effective practices and speech/language strategies for reading, written language, math and content area instruction.
