Intervention Research for Helping Elementary School Students with Math Learning Difficulties Understand and Solve Word Problems: 1996-2010
Hord, Casey; Xin, Yan Ping
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v19 n1 p3-17 Spr 2013
The authors completed a narrative review of studies of mathematics interventions from 1996 to 2010 for helping elementary school students with difficulties in mathematics solve word problems. Key instructional components supported by research are teaching cognitive and metacognitive skills; schema-based instruction focusing on semantic analysis, transfer, or algebra readiness; and conceptual model based instruction. Interventions designed to help students store, organize, and think critically about mathematical information may address the needs of many struggling students while working with word problems.
