## Research instructional strategies applicable to meeting Maria’s needs established

Case Study: Maria is 14 years old in the 9^{th} grade

It is the beginning of the second semester, and Maria is having a great deal of difficulty in her algebra class. She has an understanding of the basic concepts of algebra but has not mastered the skills needed to move to the higher-level concepts her class is now working on. Currently, her math performance level is two years below grade level and her reading performance level is one year below grade level. Maria’s teacher has spoken with her parents about the possible need for additional support, and her parents have agreed to help at home.

They have identified the following goals for Maria:

Simplify addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations (e.g., (2x + 6) (4x + 7) = 6x + 13).

Solve expressions with variables (e.g., 3x = -24).

Write and solve the algebra equation in a real-life word problem.

Part One: Strategies

Research instructional strategies applicable to meeting Maria’s needs established through her identified goals. Include a reference page.

Instructional strategies should include:

Explicitly teaching vocabulary
