These are great tips that can be used in math for slow learners. I also feel that many of the tips can also be used across other subjects. I also believe that creating a fun and enjoyable learning environment can be extremely important in reaching students.

I  found this article to be very beneficial, as I am in the pre-service stage of my education career. Doing my clinicals have been hard when it comes to math, as I find it hard to get students who struggle in math motivated to learn. I will definitely use these tips in the future to help every student have the opportunity to learn and actively engage while not feeling pressured or getting stressed.
