This study aimed to 1) code a new portion of the existing data set and test statistically if group differences exist in first graders' flexibility in selecting solution strategies while solving traditionally-worded problems and 2) to re-code the scaffolding condition data set and test statistically if, when gesture and rewording scaffolds are presented, children with low oral language skill select different solution strategies than when traditionally-worded problems are presented.
