Games and Apps for Supporting Young Students with Mathematics Difficulties
Presented by Jessica Reisfelt, Education Specialist and Game Designer, and
Hye Kyung Lee, Assessment and Evaluation Specialist

According to American School Board Journal 2006, 40% of US kindergarteners are already one to three years below grade level when they first enter public school. The most recent data from the National Association of Educational Progress (NAEP) showed that 58% of US fourth grade students are below proficiency level in mathematics (The Nation’s Report Card, 2013). With the new Common Core State Standards, many educators have questions about how to provide math activities for students who are performing below grade level while simultaneously addressing the Common Core State Standards.
 
Using math games like those found in the Todo Math app for the iPad that are thoughtfully integrated with math centers, can be an effective way to hone mathematic skills and to engage all kinds of learners.
 
In this webinar, the presenters will share engaging math games for the iPad and physical math activities that can be used for instruction and student learning in inclusive PreK, Kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms. These activities are designed so that students can work independently and at their own pace including children with mathematics difficulties. In this session, attendees will learn:
  • Who is at risk for mathematics difficulties
  • What are the underlying risk factors (speech and language delays, neurodifferences, low socioeconomic status, English language learners)
  • Common math concepts that are tricky for young students to master
  • How to build a solid foundation for early mathematics with iPad apps
