Hands-On Math teaches a wide range of standards-based math lessons to students with a learning disability and/or autism, regardless of age.
At the heart of Hands-On Math, is a set of four number lines used to demonstrate concepts and help solve related math problems. Instruction is organized by unit, skill area, and lesson. All units: Counting, Sets, Math symbols, Patterns, and Base Ten, have four skill areas. Photo-illustrated instructions help teachers present the lesson.
Students work independently or in small groups to solve problems. Both representational (pictures) and abstract (numbers and symbols) formats are presented on the laminated Activity Cards, offering differentiation for each lesson. Follow the photo-rich Instructor’s Guide to prepare for and to set up a lesson quickly. The Instructor's Guide features a PDF CD with additional Activity Cards for lesson expansion. Printable Assessment Forms and Performance Data Sheets are included on the PDF CD for easy monitoring of student progress.
