Common Core Standards, SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment give teachers a roadmap to implementing the expectations of Common Core Standards in classrooms. These programs provide tools to assess students K-5. In addition, SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment offer curriculum independent activities that meet the standards of mathematics practice outlined in the Common Core Curriculum.

Benefit: Math Understanding

Common Core Standards is the bedrock of SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment programs. These standards provide a clear and consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn. Teachers, specialists and administrators need assessment and instructional tools offered by Math Recovery® to meet Common Core Standards.

In compliance with Common Core Standards, SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment programs:

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment use a wide range of teacher selected tasks, allowing students to actively engage in solving mathematics. Instructors focus on mathematical problems, not rote learning, giving students the chance to make sense of the mathematics until they develop an understanding of the basic mathematic principle it illustrates.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment give teachers scaffolding tools to help students move from concrete representations into symbolic abstract thinking about mathematics.

Construct viable arguments and critique the reasonings of others.

Students use and compare a variety of strategies when solving problems with others. SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment also provide teachers with a specific lens for listening to student strategies.

Model with mathematics.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment activities use a wide range of models to explore number, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. These modeling activities are designed for individual, small group, and classroom use.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment provide instructors with tools for learning specifically designed to support student mathematical connections and understanding. This gives them the appropriate tool to offer at appropriate times to meet the student at his or her level of understanding.

Attend to precision.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment instruction revolves around the instructor creating an environment where the student explains his actions using math language. As the student progresses in mathematical understanding, he learns to confidently express himself accurately and precisely.

Look for and make use of structure.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment identifies tasks that highlight the structure of early number including addition and subtraction, and multiplication and division. By reflecting on genuine problem solving experiences, students identify the structure of basic operations, preparing them for the more complex disciplines of fractions and algebra.

Look for express regularity in repeated reasoning.

SNAP, Add+VantageMR®, and Math Recovery® Intervention Assessment trained instructors focus on the student’s understanding of mathematical operations. The repeated actions give the student the time and ability to recognize and reason through regular mathematical operations.
