Riccomini, Paul J.; Morano, Stephanie – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
Many students with Learning Disabilities (LD) experience low motivation and confidence in algebra as a result of the content challenges and the lack of mathematics success they have experienced previously (Kortering, de Bettencourt, & Braziel, 2005). The combination of multiple content deficits, an ongoing lack of success, and low motivation…
