Give your special education and general education students who struggle with mathematical fractions the support they need to succeed with these easy-to-implement, research-based lesson plans.

Drawing on their years of classroom experience working with struggling students and their teachers, Dr. Brad Witzel and Dr. Paul Riccomini present elementary and middle school teachers  with practical strategies and activities for promoting academic success and mastery of key mathematical concepts. They offer insight into what really helps students learn math including friendly descriptions of the concrete to representational to abstract sequence of instruction, step-by-step instruction that can be expanded from one topic to the next, assessment guides for placement and measurement, and retention of content through mixed reviews and assessments. In addition, the authors provide teachers with clear direction to implement each research-based lesson plan with answer sheets to grade student work as well as pictures of manipulations and accompanying vocabulary so that teachers are confident helping every student succeed.
