Tailoring Math Instruction to Child Development.
Connolly, Austin J.
Methods of mathematics instruction adapted for mentally handicapped students are considered. Using three theories of J. Piaget--that children's mental capabilities increase with age, that their mental capabilities pass through fairly observable stages, that mentally retarded children take longer to pass from one stage to another--the author outlines eight principles of learning and instruction. An instructional format is provided which has the following five parts: presentation, exploration, integration, seatwork, and practice and enrichment. (PHR)
