A simple strategy teachers can use to improve math skills is repetition. This is an important strategy in teaching mathematics to students who receive special education. By repeating and reviewing previous formulas, lessons and information, students are able to comprehend the information at a faster rate.

The more students are exposed to material, the more likely they are to remember it. Repetition does not have to be boring! Students can sing songs, answer questions in their math notebooks, use manipulatives to demonstrate their learning, roll dice to make repetition of basic math facts fun, participate in project based learning, and/or draw pictures to represent various numerical situations.
