For students who need support when adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers, a number line can be provided.

When teaching the value of coins, use actual coins to represent values (e.g. A nickel is equal to 5 pennies. A quarter is equal to five nickels.).

If a student is a visual learner, use manipulatives to support answering math problems (e.g. counters for adding/subtractions, fraction strips, base ten blocks,etc.)

When introducing addition, teachers can have students count items representing the numbers to be counted.

Teachers can use fraction strips to demonstrate parts of a whole.

Base 10 blocks can be used to conceptually demonstrate place value and regrouping.

Teachers can put mathematical information (e.g. definitions, graphs, equations, etc.) on cards so that students can physically sort and organize information.
