Math Discrete Trial Data - The Autism Helper

Math Discrete Trial Data

My personal goal for myself this year is improving my math instruction. It’s slightly painful for my because to be completely honest – I hate math. We have been doing small group individualized math groups that have been going really well! Students rotate between working with me, working with a paraprofessional, and independent math work (woohoo – Interactive Math Binders all the way!). During my time, I have been focusing on specific math skill sets. My lowest group is on addition 1-5, my mid group is on double digit addition/subtraction with and without regrouping, and my high group is on multiplication 1-5. So it’s a many curriculum party in my room! As always! Here is how it runs:

I write a set of math problems on the big dry erase board.

Students complete the math problems on their small dry erase boards.

While they get started on their work, I calculate the answers on a calculator.

I check students’ work and score their responses on the dry erase board.

I record their data in the data sheet.

For my touch point kiddos, this quick reference guide is a lifesaver!

  1. Where do you pull your math goals from? What about student who are non verbal, how do you teach math using receptive skills.

  2. Love it! What do you have them do with the parapro and independent work?

  3. Do you have any examples or a teacher pay teacher for the math binders?

  5. I base all goals on CCSS, any relevant assessments (ABLLS mostly), and prior learning history. For nonverbal students, we still work on touch points if we get there and focus on receptive language skill building!

  6. I have my concerns with touch math as well but some of my kids have not been able to master math in traditional ways and really need something more concrete. As long as you are supplementing to teach the concepts – it can work!
