    In the diploma thesis I consider various approaches and strategies, used by mathematics teachers and special educators, when they are working with pupils with learning difficulties in algebra, especially when providing individual assistance. In the theoretical part I describe the general and specific learning difficulties. I present the five-step model of assistance to pupils with learning difficulties that is implementation in the Slovenian elementary schools. Next, I describe some teaching strategies that are suitable for teaching algebra, especially when working individually with students with learning difficulties. The experimental part of the thesis consists of a case studyof two experts – a mathematics teacher and a special needs educator – that provide individual assistance to a student on an algebraic topic. The analysis revealed that the mathematics teacher and the speacial educator used two consistent but different approaches. When planning assistance for a student with learning difficulties it should be considered which type of help suits better. In any case, there is a strong need for an intense collaboration between the mathematics teacher and special educators.
