Math Intervention
09192018, 02:02 PM


All the math interventionists in my district have been trained in Math Recovery, the first and second classes. This aligns with our district math program which is Bridges. Interventionists use the activities and games outlined in the three Math Recovery books.
Even though Bridges has an intervention program, that is pretty much reserved for six weeks of summer school remedial math.
Students are chosen for math intervention based on being at 24% or lower on MAPS and classroom recommendations if there are open seats not filled by the MAPS scores...which seldom happens.
My school has two trained math interventionists who also do reading intervention. Each grade level has one or two classes of four students per class who attend tier two math intervention four days per week for thirty minutes per day. Tier three math intervention before referral for special ed has one or two students four days per week for thirty minutes per day.
Usually students qualify for special ed because of their reading needs, and some of these students eventually qualify for special ed math.
