Publisher's Summary:
Useful for small groups or one-on-one instruction, this book offers successful math interventions and RTI connections. Teachers will learn to target math instruction to struggling students by: * Diagnosing weaknesses * Providing specific, differentiated instruction * Using formative assessments * Offering corrective feedback * Motivating students by using games Taylor-Cox emphasizes four main goals for math instructors. They must help students achieve: accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and fluency in solving math problems. Integral to each of these goals is ensuring that students understand math concepts. Taylor-Cox writes, When concepts are ignored and the focus is solely on rules and procedures, struggling students often develop misconceptions and learning gaps. Math Interventions: Building Number Power, Grades 3-5 provides math teachers with specific strategies for imparting those concepts.
