Mathematics
Jesse is able to recall basic mathematics facts; however, when solving more complex mathematics problems with algorithms, he is unable to remember the steps and often loses his place. Jesse has attended after-school tutoring all year, but scores on his classroom assignments and tests indicate that his performance has not improved. What accommodations can be utilized to address this studentís need?

One possible accommodation for a math student who can recall facts but cannot solve complex problems is to assist the student with listing the correct steps, and then allow the students to use the list when solving problems.

I work with students similar to the student in this situation. I would teach the student different strategies other than the standard algorithm. I have found that if a student is given several different strategies, then he or she can use the one they are more successful with. Hope this helps.
