The Mathematical Education of Exceptional Children and Youth: An Interdisciplinary Approach.
Glennon, Vincent J., Ed.
This publication, the second in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) professional reference series, is a collection of essays, each coauthored by a professional mathematics educator and a special education professional and directed to a particular exceptionality. The premise that the mathematical education of exceptional children and youth requires more attention to such disciplines as developmental psychology, neurology, cognitive psychology, physiology, and biochemistry is addressed. Individual chapter titles are: (1) Exceptional Children in Changing Times; (2) Variables in a Theory of Mathematics Instruction for Children and Youth; (3) Teaching Mathematics to Children and Youth with Perceptual and Cognitive Processing Deficits; (4) Teaching Mathematics to Socially and Emotionally Impaired Pupils; (5) Teaching Mathematics to Slow-Learning and Mentally Retarded Children; (6) Teaching Mathematics to the Talented and Gifted; (7) Teaching Mathematics to the Visually Impaired; (8) Teaching Mathematics to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing; (9) Teaching Mathematics of Children with Physical and Health Impairments; and (10) Improving Preservice and Inservice Programs for Teaching Mathematics to the Exceptional.
