Case Study:  Maria

Age:  14

It is the beginning of the second semester; 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:

1. Simplify addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division equations (e.g., (2x + 6) (4x + 7) = 6x + 13).
2. Solve expressions with variables (e.g., 3x = -24).
3. Write and solve the algebra equation in a real-life word problem.

Part Three: Home Connection

In 250-words, summarize and explain how you plan to involve Maria’s parents in meeting her goals. Include a specific at-home activity to help in her continued success.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Summary fails to explain how to involve the parents of the individual with exceptionalities in meeting goals, including an at-home activity to help in continued success. Summary insufficiently explains how to involve the parents of the individual with exceptionalities in meeting goals, including an appropriate specific at-home activity to help in continued success. Summary sufficiently explains how to involve the parents of the individual with exceptionalities in meeting goals, including an appropriate specific at-home activity to help in continued success. Summary thoroughly explains how to involve the parents of the individual with exceptionalities in meeting goals, including an appropriate specific at-home activity to help in continued success. 5.0 % Mechanics of Writing (includes spelling, punctuation, grammar, language use) No submission. Surface errors are pervasive enough that they impede communication of meaning. Inappropriate word choice and/or sentence construction are used. Frequent and repetitive mechanical errors distract the reader. Inconsistencies in language choice (register) and/or word choice are present. Sentence structure is correct but not varied. Prose is largely free of mechanical errors, although a few may be present. The writer uses a variety of effective sentence structures and figures of speech. Writer is clearly in command of standard, written, academic English. 5.0 % Research Citations (in-text citations for paraphrasing and direct quotes, and reference page listing and formatting, as appropriate to assignment and style) No submission. No reference page is included. No citations are used. Reference page is present. Citations are inconsistently used. Reference page is present and fully inclusive of all cited sources. Documentation is appropriate and citation style is usually correct. In-text citations and a reference page are complete and correct.
