Supporting Students with Learning Disabilities to Explore Linear Relationships Using Online Learning Objects
Beatty, Ruth; Bruce, Catherine D.
PNA, v7 n1 p21-39 2012
The study of linear relationships is foundational for mathematics teaching and learning. However, students' abilities to connect different representations of linear relationships have proven to be challenging. In response, a computer-based instructional sequence was designed to support students' understanding of the connections among representations. In this paper we report on the affordances of this dynamic mode of representation specifically for students with learning disabilities. We outline four results identified by teachers as they implemented the online lessons. [This document was originally published as Beatty, R., & Bruce, C. D. (2011).
