Marsh, Lynn G.; Cooke, Nancy L.
Learning Disabilities Research and Practice, v11 n1 p58-65 Win 1996
Three third graders with a history of low achievement in math were first given verbal (abstract) instruction in solving word problems. Students were then introduced to manipulatives instruction using Cuisenaire rods to set up word problems. Students exhibited immediate and sustained improvement on subsequent probes administered without manipulatives available. (Author/DB)
