Overview

An educator and a mother of an adult son with Down syndrome presents a math program for teaching math to students—preschoolers through adults—who have cognitive or learning problems. The focus is to teach math skills that will lead to and support independent living. An educator with 30 years of experience and the parent of a young man with Down syndrome, the author uses hands-on activities to teach critical math skills necessary to live independently. The author, an experienced educator, was inspired to write 'Teaching Math' to meet the needs of hands-on learners after observing the difficulty her adult son with Down Syndrome and his peers had in applying math skills to everyday life. 'Teaching Math' gives parents and teachers high-interest, hands-on strategies and ideas for teaching math to learners of all ages.
