Teaching Handicapped Students Mathematics: A Resource Handbook for K-12 Teachers.
Brockmann, Ellen M., Ed.
One of five volumes intended to help teachers of mainstreamed handicapped students, the book presents twelve papers on teaching mathematics. Eight papers address instructional techniques for basic skills and problem solving: "Modalities--One Technique to Mainstream in Mathematics Instruction" (G. Rossi); "Computation Errors--Are We Treating A Symptom and Not the Cause?" (J. Webb, L. Webb); "An Individualized Approach for Low-Achieving Labelled and Nonlabelled Junior High Mathematics Students--A Longitudinal Report" (R. Uhl); "Nonmathematical Diagnostic Variables" (T. Denmark); "Mathematics Means Manipulatives--Teaching Number Concepts To Young Learning-Disabled Children" (M. Myers); "Teaching Mathematics to Visually Handicapped Students" (E. Binstock); "TIPS--Techniques in Planning for Handicapped Students in Regular Class Mathematics" (C. Thornton); and "Teaching Mathematics to LD Adolescents" (R. Riley, F. Reisman). Part Two contains four papers concerning mathematical tools for independent living: "Reverse Mainstreaming with Microcomputers in Mathematics" (B. Iossi); "The Student With Exceptional Education Needs and the Calculator" (K. Dietrich-Allen, H. Kepner, Jr.); "Banking Mathematics for the Classroom with EMH Pupils" (G. Rice); and "The Mechanics of Telling Time" (E. Gramuska). (CL)
