"Solving for Why offers educators the tools and guidance essential for successfully solving for why students struggle with mathematics. The step-by-step, RTI (Response to Intervention) like approaches, focused on assessment and communication with students, help teachers gain insight into student understanding in a remarkably different way than recipe-type approaches that assume the same solution applies to learners with similar struggles. With Solving for Why you ll learn how to: identify a struggling math learner; develop theories for why a learner may be struggling; facilitate a Concrete Representational Abstract (CRA) Assessment; implement an insightful Collaborative Study; conduct powerful student interviews; support learners who struggle with memory challenges, attention deficit disorder, and affective difficulties (math anxiety); differentiate instruction through a main lesson menu lesson plan; and more. Each chapter includes reproducible templates for ease in carrying out the assessments. A final section offers resources for supporting students who struggle with additive reasoning, multiplicative reasoning, fractions, and proportional reasoning. The reproducibles are also available in a downloadable, printable format at""
