Developing Addition and Regrouping Competence among Second Grade Students
Miller, Susan P.; Kaffar, Bradley J.
Investigations in Mathematics Learning, v4 n1 p25-51 Fall 2011
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of using the concrete-representational-abstract (CRA) teaching sequence with integrated strategy instruction for developing addition with regrouping competence among students with learning difficulties in mathematics. A total of 16 lessons were provided to 24 students during a six-week summer program. Students who received CRA with integrated strategy instruction out-performed comparison students on both computation and fluency. The two groups performed similarly on word problems and a discrimination/review measure. Based on these results, practical implications and suggestions for future study are provided.
