Effectiveness of Mastering Math Facts on Second- and Third-Grade Students with Specific Learning Disabilities in Mathematics
Fries, Karen M.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Pennsylvania State University
Students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) in mathematics can typically experience long-lasting problems when developing fluency with basic math facts despite the use of evidence-based practices. One recently developed intervention to promote memorization and fact-fluency is Mastering Math Facts (MMF). MMF is a commercially-available program that is in use in schools across the United States, yet there is currently limited empirical evidence that shows its impact as an intervention for students with SLD. The current study investigated the effectiveness of MMF for four second- and third-grade students with SLD in mathematics by measuring digits correct per minute (dc/m) and per 2 minutes (dc/2m) on daily curriculum-based measures and weekly 2-minute math facts timings, respectively. Improvements were noted across all students' dc/m and dc/2m scores from their pre-test and baseline measures following implementation of MMF. Implications for educators are provided.
