Abstract


The purpose of this study was to identify the effectiveness of cooperative learning in improving mathematical concepts among students with mild intellectual disability(SMID). The sample of the study consisted of 8 SMID at Najran in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The sample of the study were divided randomly into two equal groups control and experimental. The students in the experimental group have studied the mathematical concepts by using cooperative learning; however the students in the control group were received their teaching by the conventional method. The photo mathematical concepts test was applied for two groups as pretest and posttest. Results showed the effectiveness of cooperative learning in improving mathematical concepts for SMID in favor of the students in the experimental group.
