1. Teach vocabulary using realia and demonstration

1.1. Demonstration effect.

2. Relate math problems and vocabulary to prior knowledge and background

2.1. Prior knowledge.

3. Apply problems to daily life situations

3.1. Applying problems.

4. Use manipulatives to make problems concrete

4.1. Solving problems concrete.

5. Encourage drawings to translate and visualize word problems.

5.1. Drawing math concepts

6. Have ELL/special education students pair with typical students for computer/cooperative activities

6.1. -Collaborative work

6.2. -English language and facilitate inclusion

7. Encourage children to think aloud when solving word problems, and have students give oral explanations of their thinking, leading to solutions.

7.1. Polya’s method 4 steps:

7.2. Read and understand the problem.

7.3. generated strategy

7.4. Carry out their strategy/plan,

7.4.1. -Look back/check solution

8. Have students write original word problems to exchange with classmates.

8.1. Games

8.2. cooperative groups.

9. Explain directions clearly, and repeat key terms.

9.1. teachers sensitive to language difficulties

10. Encourage students to follow the four-step problem-solving process.

10.1. verbalizing the concepts, processes to solve problems.

11. Realize that not all math notations are necessarily universal.

11.1. Math concepts that are based on money and time are not universal.

12. Group students heterogeneously during cooperative learning.

12.1. classrooms that emphasize individual performance, teacher-centered learning,

13. Make interdisciplinary connections to what students are learning in math.

13.1. The more opportunities that a student has to connect new knowledge with existing knowledge increases the generalization potential.

14. Make cultural connections for students when teaching mathematics.

14.1. he classroom in which students from multicultural backgrounds display the origins of math concepts from their cultures

15. Rewrite word problems in simple terms.

15.1. These problems center around concepts and vocabulary such as words of a technical nature such as:

15.1.1. denominator

15.1.2. quotient

15.1.3. coefficient

15.1.4. rational

15.1.5. column

15.1.6. table

16. Concretize math concepts with Total Physical Response

16.1. it's fun to learn math

17. Create word bank charts and hang them in the classroom for viewing.

17.1. involve a second language. Visual learning devices

18. Take Internet field trips and use mathematics software.

18.1. technology, the Internet and physical spaces.

19. Use children’s literature to teach mathematics and develop the language.

19.1. technology, the Internet and physical spaces.

20. Using auditory, visual, and kinesthetic teaching approaches for different learning styles enables teachers to reach more students than the traditional direct-instruction or paper and pencil drill and practice forms of instruction.

20.1. . learning styles, strategies and implementation.
