International Journal of Special Education, v20 n2 p58-65 2005
A classroom intervention employing math racetracks was carried out to teach math facts to two elementary students with learning disabilities. A math racetrack is a drill and practice procedure where known and unknown facts are placed on a sheet of paper like an oval racetrack. The effectiveness of using math racetracks was evaluated with a multiple baseline design across problem sets. The results indicated that math racetracks were successful in increasing the skill sets of both participants in math. This provides a novel replication of employing a racetrack procedure that has been effective in reading, to elementary students in math. The practical implications of employing racetrack like procedures are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
