Abstract

This study’s purpose was to compare the effectiveness between Direct Instruction (DI) flashcards and Math Racetracks on the number of correct multiplication facts for afourteen-year-old boy with a learning disability and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The setting was a library conference room in a High School. The target skill was the correct number of multiplication facts. A frequency count data collection system within an alternating treatment design compared which intervention would be more successful. Reliability was 100%. DI flashcard system presented individual flashcards with multiplication facts written on it. If an error was made the researchers performed a model-lead-test-re-test correction strategy. The intervention deck was repeated until few or no errors were made. Math Racetracks used a graphic racetrack with 19 spaces for multiplication facts with repeated trials. If an error occurred, a model-lead-test-re-test correction was employed. Overall, DI Flashcards was more successful than Math Racetracks.
