Understanding the Cognitive Processes and Metacognitive Strategies That Work with Mathematical Learning Disabilities
Rader, Laura
Journal on Educational Psychology, v3 n1 p1-6 May-Jul 2009
The reality is that approximately 5-8% of school-age students have memory or other cognitive deficits that interfere with their ability to acquire, master, and apply mathematical concepts and skills (Geary, 2004). These students with Mathematical Learning Disabilities (MLD) are at risk for failure in middle school mathematics because they generally are unprepared for the rigor of the middle school mathematics curriculum. This article not only seeks to explore why students with MLD are such poor mathematical problems solvers, but it seeks to explore and illuminate the mystery behind the cognitive processes and metacognitive strategies that are used to solve mathematical problems.
