Math Methodology: UDL as a Prevention Strategy in Addressing Needs of Students with Math Difficulties

In this essay, UDL is proposed as the first tier in a prevention strategy by Fuchs and Fuchs, well known for their work in intervention strategies.

 

"Universal Design for Learning from the Center for Applied Special Technology calls for students to have multiple means of expression, representation, and engagement in their learning. Instructional media should provide those elements and have scaffolds built in (Deubel, 2003). Within a universal design framework, Fuchs and Fuchs (2001, pp. 86-87) presented four principles of primary prevention that can be used with all students."

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover

Dan Meyer shows ways that he engages students in math and provides "multiple representations" in solving word problems at the high school level. Overall, this is a great example of how to apply UDL strategies in a subject that so many students do not do well in.  Thank you, Dan!
