NDTAC Guide: Making It Count: Strategies for Improving Mathematics Instruction for Students in Short-Term Facilities

You are here

This guide is the second edition of the Making It Count publication, first published by NDTAC in 2010. This version updates the information from the earlier publication, and also includes strategies for using project-based learning and Web-based instructional programs to support the development of mathematics proficiency for youth in short-term juvenile correctional facilities.

This guide is primarily designed to help practitioners implement research-based, effective mathematics instruction in short-term facilities; and provides recommendations, strategies, and examples for teachers that increase the likelihood that students will become more proficient at understanding mathematics and applying existing and emerging skills. Just as important, the guide can help teachers promote the self-confidence of students in their ability to use mathematics to solve problems.
