Mathematics for the Mildly Handicapped. A Guide to Curriculum and Instruction.
Cawley, John F.; And Others
This textbook for teachers discusses methods of teaching mathematics to mildly handicapped children in the elementary school. The mathematics is restricted to topics appropriate for and attainable by varied groups of handicapped children. Decisions on what, when, and for how long to teach are more crucial than how to teach. The first two chapters discuss selected characteristics of mildly handicapped children and their meaning for learning. Chapter 3 concerns space, spatial relations, and figures, which has been found to be among the easiest areas of mathematics for mildly handicapped children. Chapter four concerns prenumber content, followed by chapters on whole numbers, the operations with whole numbers, fractions, measurement, problem solving related to word problems, and problem solving with divergent considerations. Chapters on assessment and on multimedia materials conclude the text. References and an index are included. (MNS)
