Dr. Paul Nolty has a whole guide and course materials for math study skills. The teacher's guide is excellent and well worth a look during the planning stages for math study skills.

I was once asked by the Math Department if I could teach a course on how to READ math word problems (because after all I was the READING instructor. ;-))  Isn't that 75% of the difficulty? Then it is only 25% math!!!  I used Lockheed and Whimbey's text Solving Word Problems.

I would love to see some information on this topic as well. Our College might 
be  heading in that direction too.
Thanks
