Assisting Struggling Students with Mathematics: What Works for Tiered Interventions in Elementary and Middle Schools

September 28, 2017

The strategies communicated in this webinar will help those who provide math intervention to understand evidence-based strategies for effectiveness. Access to course pathways and STEM careers is often dependent on students' success in Algebra I. Starting as early as kindergarten, math instruction should focus on concepts and skills that will prepare students for success in algebra, with a particular focus on whole numbers and rational numbers in grades 4–8. In addition to focused instruction, students need access to interventions to address mathematics difficulties that could prevent success in algebra. This webinar will present research-based approaches to assisting students who are struggling in math, focusing on recommendations from an Institute of Education Sciences (IES) practice guide, with specific examples of instructional strategies related to those recommendations.
