Multiplication and Division for Special Education is:

  • Research-based: Every lesson and every teaching tip is rooted in proven research strategies that work for special education students

  • Designed for YOU and YOUR students: This isn’t a generic course about how to teach multiplication and division. Every lesson is specifically geared towards teachers who work with students with learning disabilities

  • Actionable teaching strategies: These aren’t vague theoretical ideas, but real advice you can implement in your classroom immediately to see real change.

"How do I help my kids master grade-level standards when they don’t know their basic math facts? Many of my students are missing foundational skills so there is a lot of backtracking needed in order for them to learn new material."

"How can I make sure my students don’t forget their facts? Teaching my students who have learning disabilities is difficult because even if they understand concepts, they have difficulty retaining details and remembering the facts and procedures."

"How can I increase my students’ confidence in learning multiplication and division? It seems that once they go home, they lose their confidence and forget how to approach problems properly."

"How do I maintain student engagement and also prevent them from becoming frustrated? My students get impatient when learning multiplication and division and frustrated with themselves when they get problems wrong."

Does this sound familiar? In this course, you’ll find out exactly what to do and what to avoid to transform your multiplication and division instruction with evidence-based math intervention and teaching strategies.

Why should I enroll?

You want your struggling math students to feel success and experience those “AHA” moments. You also want to finally move beyond teaching and reteaching the basic multiplication and division facts so your students can experience the joy and excitement of more complex math.

    Dr. Colleen Uscianowski

    Before earning my Ph.D. from Teachers College, Columbia University, I taught professional development courses and workshops to teachers for 10 years. I began my career as a special education teacher. When my students struggled with math, I felt unprepared and found few available resources. On a mission to help my struggling students succeed, I spent many years researching math strategies. I became an adjunct professor to help equip other teachers with the knowledge and skills they needed to help their students, as well. My mission is to make sure no other teacher feels unprepared to teach math, which is why I’m sharing my knowledge of math intervention techniques and love of math teaching with you!

Of the courses I have taken thus far, this is the course I have learned the most from, by far! Not only have I learned the material but you have provided us with so many resources and assets that I will definitely use in the future. Actually, some of the strategies we have learned I have already been applying in my lesson plans.

Colleen was an amazing instructor, who really taught me vital strategies for helping students of all ability levels. Colleen's passion for the field was obvious, and I truly enjoyed every minute of her class. I loved this course, and it served to reinforce my passion for special education.

Lisa

The course videos and materials were very helpful to explain the topics; they had clear definitions, explanations, and various examples to best teach the lesson. The videos showing real-life implementation of math instruction was helpful in further understanding the material.

David

This class was a great benefit towards my education. I wish that more teachers could be like you because the way you taught the class always kept us interested and focused. This class was very inspirational and has given me great insight towards special education that I had not realized before.
