Mathematics Intervention Strategies

Summary of Intervention Strategies to Support Students Struggling with Math:

  1. Use of structured peer-assisted learning activities involving heterogeneous ability groupings.
  2. Use systematic and explicit instruction using visual and graphic representations.
  3. Modify instruction based on data from formative assessments of students (such as classroom discussions or quizzes).
  4. Provide opportunities for students to think aloud while they work.
  5. Share and discuss formative assessment data results with students.
  6. Instruction during the intervention should be explicit and systematic.
  7. Interventions should include instruction on solving word problems that are based on common underlying structures.  This includes instruction on how to reading math problems.
  8. Be intentional regarding teaching students the eight Standards of Mathematical Practices.
  9. Increase opportunities for productive student discourse.
  10. Provide explicit instruction on writing in mathematics. For example, explaining answers and the processes taken to answer mathematical problems in writing.tion to English.
