Reflection: Students with Disabilities Part to Part Ratios Using Tape Diagrams and Tables - Section 2: Intro to New Material


This year, I have a number of students who need extra support to reach mastery in my math classes, because of a variety of learning disabilities. 

With the switch to the Common Core standards, I'm using modeling in my lessons in a way that I hadn't years ago.  I'm finding that pictorial representations of problems have really helped to make math more accessible for all of my students, including my students with learning disabilities.  

The tape diagrams in this unit make ratios visible for students, which has been a support for everyone's learning.
