    Abstract

    In my Master's thesis, I researched specific aspects of pupils with learning deficits in the 7th grade of primary school, in geometry. The theoretical part presents pupils with learning deficits, facing difficulties with reading, writing, spelling, computing, focusing, memorizing, thinking, coordination, communication, social skills and emotional maturation. These deficits often make it difficult for pupils to progress in mathematics and consequently in other subject areas and at everyday tasks. I studied the extent to which author-based training in the form of additional technical assistance as a learning aid for the development of geometric skills and knowledge influences the performance of pupils with learning difficulties in geometry. The aim of the master's thesis is planning, designing, implementation and evaluation of training for the development of geometric skills and knowledge in 7th grade of elementary school, which will enable participants with learning deficits to perform better in geometry and follow mathematics lessons more easily. Four pupils with learning deficits were involved in the training, with whom I covered the triangles topic, which includes part of geometric concepts in the mathematics curriculum. The training took place in the form of additional technical assistance as learning aid, including general and specific strategies for teaching geometry. Progress in knowledge is visible to all participating pupils, so we can say that the training was successful. The master's thesis presents the methods of work used during the training, which can assist mathematics teachers offering additional technical help as teaching aid with providing it.
