What is Math Intervention?

Math Intervention is a class that students take in addition to their Algebra 1 or Geometry course. This class acts as a support for struggling math students, and helps to build fundamental math skills like fact fluency, fractions/decimals/percentages, application problems, and other topics that are more inline with the Algebra 1 curriculum.  Progress is tracked, and if a student makes enough progress, they will have the option to exit the course. Exit from the course is possible at the end of each marking period, provided the student has made adequate progress, is on grade level, and is passing the course.

 

**New this year**

This year, we will be using StarMath as our progress monitoring assessment program. This program is aligned to the Common Core curriculum, and will track a student’s improvements and progress in their skill level.

We will also be using www.tenmarks.com and www.xtramath.org. These websites will help students with their reasoning skills, as well as their fact fluency.
