About This Course

The Math Recovery® Intervention course provides the deepest level of professional development and support available through the US Math Recovery Council®. This intensive professional development promotes a continual cycle of reflection and refinement resulting in a high level of mathematics intervention expertise.

Who is this course for?

Math Recovery® Intervention is recommended for educators who have at least three years of teaching experience. Intervention teachers, leaders, and coaches, and anyone who works with students who are not meeting grade-level standards would benefit from this professional development.

One Year of Professional Development

The Math Recovery® Intervention program is a rigorous course that provides intensive professional development and develops mathematics intervention teaching expertise. Assessment and instructional topics include addition and subtraction, structuring numbers, number word sequences, numeral identification, place value, multi-digit addition and subtraction, and early multiplication and division. Through the intensity and depth of this professional development training, the Math Recovery® Intervention Specialist is able to precisely diagnose lower attaining students and design instruction implemented in 1:1 or small group sessions.

There are no prerequisites for taking this course. However, certification in this material is a prerequisite to Champion and Leader courses that lead to building in-district capacity.

Math Recovery® Intervention Testimonials

I am excited to share (as a Champion) AVMR Course information with participants. I am looking forward to continuing my work with students and now plan to support staff members (as funding permits) to reach even more students in need. I would love to see Math Recovery fully implemented within our district. I would like to be the person in our area that helps bring Math Recovery to all. I so enjoy the MR staff and look forward to continuing my work within MR.

Course Participant Marshall, MI

Before going through the MRIS training program I had many pieces of knowledge and understanding regarding how to fill learning gaps for my intervention students. As I completed my learning year, I feel strongly that my training has woven these pieces together into a deeper understanding of levels and stages that transcends to my instruction.

Math Interventionist/Math Coach (K-3) Fond du Lac, WI

As a math coach, the MRIS designation has made me more knowledgable and more solid in my understanding of numeracy development. I will be able to share this learning with my teachers from now on.

Math Coach Fond du Lac, WI

The most rewarding experiences that came from completing MRIS designation were: - the knowledge I gained about how students learn math - understanding how to facilitate that learning by taking a constructivist approach - having the confidence to know where to go next with my students through the understanding of progressive mathematization, the guiding principles, key elements, and characteristics of children's problem solving - witnessing students' cognitive reorganizations - supporting students throughout an entire Math Recovery cycle and seeing the growth they made - collaborating with colleagues around our learning

Course Participant Green Bay, WI

I have enjoyed my journey so far and just seeing the improvement that my lessons have made to my students have inspired me and I hope to continue my learning in this area. It just makes sense and it is what good teaching should be about because all too often we get away from doing the right thing by students and we try to fill their heads as quickly as possible because of the demands that are placed on us. Every future teacher should go through a class like this.... thank you!
