In addition, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics of 2000 backs offering all the youths equal access to the concepts of mathematics (Montague & Jitendra, 2009). The purpose of this paper is to discuss the cognitive strategy instruction as it relates to teaching math to adolescent students with mild learning disabilities. Students with mild learning disabilities generally often have difficulties in achieving the standards of academic content and excelling in the assessments. Particularly, students with mild learning disabilities usually have difficulties with algebraic reasoning, mathematics basic skills, and problem solving skills. Majority of these students struggle with the means of approaching mathematics problems, carrying out selected plans, and making effective decisions. An effective approach to aid adolescent students with mild learning disabilities in accessing challenging concepts of mathematics is to offer strategy instruction (Montague & Jitendra, 2009). This paper therefore defines cognitive strategy instructions, identifies significant features of effective cognitive strategies, and identifies key contents necessary for instructing adolescent students with mild learning disabilities in the use of the cognitive strategy. ...Show more
One of the major challenges that teachers face currently with students academically struggling is how to offer access to the general curriculum. For most of the students with difficulties in cognitive acquisition, cognitive notation is usually challenging…
Since math is a critical part of everyday life, it is important that these students develop a method for problem solving that can be applied to their lives. Two approaches were used to see which was more effective for the students that had learning disabilities.
For most of the students, the learning difficulties remain lifelong challenges, although some develop compensatory skill sets or effective coping strategies. Technology can be a fundamental factor for some students in altering learning disability into a learning difference.
This paper focuses on the health problems that young adult in the United States of America experience and how they perceive them. Young adults refer to persons between the age of 18 and 24 years. Young adulthood as a stage occurs after adolescence when most young people begin to be independent.
Using Manipulatives in Teaching Math for High School Students with Learning Disabilities
There are different forms of manupilatives; they can be, dried beans, sticks, stones, bottle tops, small pieces of wooden blocks, cubes cuboids. The manupilatives are used to introduce practice, or remediate math concept.
By and large, students with learning disabilities exhibit poor performance in certain regions of academic curricula while also showing average or above-average performance in other areas (Bowen & Rude, 2006). Due to the common characteristics exhibited by students with learning disabilities, it is quite common for such students to exhibit lower academic performance than non-disabled students.

Manupilatives are used to bridge the gap between informal Math and formal Math. To achieve these objectives manupilatives used in classroom instruction must fit the development level of the students (Case et al, 2009). Young
