Editorial Reviews



I found this book to be very user-friendly, and easy to follow.


Provides good explanations of common misunderstandings, as well useful intervention tools.


It clearly states indicators and common misunderstandings students have and offers practical and do-able interventions.

From the Back Cover

Teaching Learners Who Struggle with Mathematics:

Responding With Systematic Intervention and Remediation, 3/e

Helene J. Sherman, Lloyd I. Richardson, and George J. Yard


A valuable and necessary resource for teachers of remediation and intervention.


This book is designed for aspiring and practicing teachers who will work or are working with K-6 students in need of remediation and additional math instruction. Addressing the mathematical concepts students struggle with most, including place value, addition and subtraction of whole numbers, multiplication, division, fractions, and time and money, this book analyzes the roots and causes of frequent error patterns in student work and offers implementable solutions for solving them and teaching lifelong math skills. A Data Analysis Sheet is presented as an example for each problem area and followed by a Math Improvement Plan that offers guidance on how to instruct students in need of additional intervention and prepare them with lifelong mathematics skills.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Was very unhappy with this textbook. It appeared to be edited by amateurs. Was required for a masters level course and ended up spending more time looking for, and finding, misprints and mistakes than spent using the material. Referred to a DAS and MIP, but neither can be found online and writing them are a lesson in repetition of needless information. Only saving grace were some good exercises that a teacher could use or adapt in the classroom. I know there is a more current version on the market and can only hope for the sake of those that read it that it has the corrections made.
