In this article researchers identify the three main areas of mathematics cognition and identify technology tools and programs that may benefit students with difficulties in mathematics. The article is structured to define and provide solutions for declarative math difficulties, procedural math difficulties, and conceptual math difficulties. Throughout the article links or suggestions about software or internet resources (some free and some for purchase) are provided.

This resource is included in the following PD Collection(s): Strategies for Teaching Students Struggling With MathematicsThis collection supports teachers working with students with learning disabilities or struggling with math in general. Teachers will find resources to engage learners, strategies to enhance problem solving and suggestions for intervention models. When teachers chose appropriate material and technology that reflects students' abilities and preferences, students have a better opportunity to learn new concepts. Several videos, articles and research reports help teachers with strategies and techniques to reach struggling learners more effectively.
