MAF Grant Approved Primary Mathematics Intervention Programs

 
  • Program: Add+VantageMR
  • Vendor Website: http://www.mathrecovery.org/addvantage
  • Vendor Contact: info@mathrecovery.org
  • Grade Levels: K-3
  • Program Description: : Add+VantageMR provides teaches with efficient and effective assessment tools to diagnose students’ current understandings of number concepts, providing evidence for differentiated, data-driven instruction, advancing student numeracy according to the Learning Framework in Number and the Kentucky Core Academic Standards for Mathematics progressions. Recommended small group size is 6-8 students.
  • Professional Learning Description: This ten day course is built around Add+Vantage Math Recovery and is designed for elementary grades teachers to learn and practice assessments and teaching strategies for advancing students' foundational number knowledge, including addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
  • Professional Learning Cost: $2,000
 
  • Program: Assessing Math Concepts
  • Vendor Website: http://assessingmathconcepts.com
  • Vendor Contact: Sheryl Russell sheryl@mathperspectives.com
  • Grade Levels: K-3
  • Program Description: Assessing Math Concepts (AMC) is a continuum of nine assessments that are formative, summative, and diagnostic and pinpoint what a child knows and still needs to learn. AMC helps deepen teachers’ understanding of the mathematics they teach. Recommended small group size is 6-10 students.
  • Professional Learning Description: KMIT is a ten day numeracy-based professional learning experience for new and/or replacement MITs utilizing Do the Math or Assessing Math Concepts intervention programs. Participants will learn how to diagnostically assess student understanding and how to design or choose instructional tasks to foster student understanding. Participants will also be supported in grant specific intervention programs.
  • Professional Learning Cost: $1,600
 
  • Program: Do The Math, created by Marilyn Burns
  • Vendor Website: http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/dothemath/
  • Vendor Contact: Tracy Stewart tstewart@scholastic.com; Stacy Muir smuir@scholastic.com
  • Grade Levels: 2-3
  • Program Description: Arithmetic intervention: 13 modules of 30-minute lessons focused on number and operation; 6 or 7 modules last 40 to 42 weeks. Recommended small group size is 8 students. Please note: Scholastic recommends another Marilyn Burns resource, Math Reads, for kindergarten students.
  • Professional Learning Description: KMIT is a ten day numeracy-based professional learning experience for new and/or replacement MITs utilizing Do the Math or Assessing Math Concepts intervention programs. Participants will learn how to diagnostically assess student understanding and how to design or choose instructional tasks to foster student understanding. Participants will also be supported in grant specific intervention programs.
  • Professional Learning Cost: $1,600
 
  • Program: Math Recovery Intervention Specialist
  • Vendor Website: http://www.mathrecovery.org/intervention-specialist
  • Vendor Contact: info@mathrecovery.org
  • Grade Levels: Focus on first grade with applications for kindergarten, second, and third grades
  • Program Description: Development of teacher expertise in mathematics, through study, practice, collegial reflection, and application of tools and strategies for assessing and advancing student numeracy, based on the Learning Framework in Number. For tier 3 intensive intervention, recommended group size of 1 student. For tier 2 intervention students, the recommended group size is 2-3 students.
  • Professional Learning Description: MRIS is the KCM's most rigorous learning experience for elementary grades teachers who deliver intensive mathematics intervention and who help students at different ages and ability levels. Completing this course is also the route to becoming a Math Recovery Leader, SNAP (Student Numeracy Assessment Progressions) Facilitator, and/or Add+Vantage MR Champion. MRIS includes 10 days of training spread over 3 sessions. MRIS also requires 4 in-person collegial team meetings, which will be scheduled at the discretion of the facilitator and training participants.
  • Professional Learning Cost: $3,490
