ab: Summary: Reform-based math instruction calls for students’ construction
of conceptual understanding, solving challenging problems and
explanation of reasoning. However, existing literature shows that
students with learning disabilities (LD) easily get lost in
reform-based instruction. As an outcome of collaborative work between
math education and special education in instructing students with LD,
we’ve developed an intelligent tutor (PGBM-COMPS) to nurture
multiplicative reasoning of students with LD. The intelligent tutor
dynamically models individual student’s evolving conceptions and
recommends tasks to promote her/his advancement to a higher level in
the learning trajectory and solve complex word problems using
mathematical model equations. This study evaluated the effect of this
intelligent tutor on improving multiplicative reasoning and problem
solving of students with LD.
