For decades in the United States, mathematics education has tended to be undervalued, as evidenced by the low ranking of American students in international comparisons of math scores. Although federal legislation (No Child Left Behind, or NCLB) and state-driven standards initiatives have been adopted to address systematic underperformance, many teachers struggle with preparing students who have difficulty with the foundations of math to meet these standards.

RTI & Math: The Classroom Connection is a valuable resource for elementary school teachers who are responsible for ensuring that students acquire critical mathematics skills. The book reviews current research, standards and best practices, the challenges related to mathematics education, and offers teacher-friendly, research-based techniques for helping students master four key areas of early mathematics (based on recommendations from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) and the National Mathematics Advisory Panel):

  • Language and Concepts
  • Number Sense
  • Computational Fluency
  • Problem Solving

Authors Karen Kemp, Mary Ann Eaton and Sharon Poole provide an overview of Response To Intervention (RTI) and explain how the three-tiered model can be used to conduct initial assessments, select and administer interventions, and monitor and document student progress. The book includes

  • Reproducible tracking forms for documenting interventions
  • Sample Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) probes for monitoring student progress and overall growth
  • Multiple ready-to-use interventions for each of the four critical areas of early mathematics

The book also addresses the critical issue of motivation and recommends strategies and interventions for improving student motivation by making lessons more relevant and relating instruction to students’ natural interests.  In addition, the authors pose many thought-provoking questions about student learning that will lead teachers to a more intentional approach to teaching math literacy.
