Accommodations for Sandra:
Sandra has been doing well in her math classes before she started algebra. A strength of hers is her memory. She can spout out different formulas and equations, but the difficulty comes from the application of the formulas and equations. She is unsure of when to use them. Other strengths of hers include how well she works with other and her skills with computers. Sandra has been having trouble completely her homework. After making accommodations, it is important to find the reason why she is not completing her homework. She may not be completely the homework because she does not understand the material. An accommodation that may be helpful is a graphic organizer to help Sandra understand the how to apply the formulas and concepts from class. Guided notes is another great tool that could help Sandra keep her notes organized and could make it easier for her to learn how to apply the formulas and concepts she will learn throughout the course and later on in her math classes.
