Begin with the easiest problems, and add the harder problems in a progressive order on worksheets 

Fold or divide math paper into fourths, sixths, eighths, etc. Place one problem in each box. 

Provide visual clues for problemsolving tasks. Use concrete manipulatives  
Check to see that the meaning of key symbols is clear (+,,x,etc.) 

Show relationship of key words to their symbols—all together = +, less than =, how many more = 

Use color code, rhythm, signs, jumprope, etc. for drills 

Turn lined paper vertically to help students organize math problems. This keeps the ones, tens, and hundreds in place  
Use large graph paper. One numeral can be written in each square. Gradually make the transition to regular paper 

Allow a student to use a calculator 

Drill aloud to teacher or study buddy (use flashcards)  
Determine if student is developmentally ready for specific concepts 

Give immediate feedback (ideally, selfcheck and correct within class time)  
Reduce quantity of material assigned (odds or evens) 

Use real money in situations that the student can relate to  
Check the whole problem not just the answer (s/he may know how and why but write down the wrong answer) 

Let the student work on the black/white board (use large motor skills)  
Provide basic math facts  
Use technology, i.e., IXL, ALEKS, FASTT Math (see resources)  
Teach multiplication using rhyme or other memory devices, i.e., Rhymes ‘n’ Times, Multiplication in a Flash (see resources)  
Teach to skill level, not grade level 

Allow use of tables or note cards for assignments and tests (may be a modification for high school)
