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 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!

Math Interventionist Amherst, MA

My participation in this course has given me a deeper level of knowledge, theory and understanding to support, develop and coach our elementary teachers in their math instruction and intervention. I have also been able to better support our classroom teachers in planning effective intervention lessons using the classroom instructional framework and guiding principles. In addition, I have been using my videos of assessment administration and lessons as learning model to them to better develop their use and understanding of using assessment information to drive instruction.        

Math Interventionist Apple Valley, MN

This was an excellent component of the program. It was wonderful to have an expert guide us, help us through insecurities and new learning. I can't imagine doing this without coaching, trying to figure it all out on my own.

Math Consultant Muskegon, MI

The ability to assess a student and work in their zone of learning. I have seen such growth in the students I have worked with. This spring I also realized the retention rate of the learning students had. It was impressive.

Math Coach Amherst, MA

This will really help me in my work with special education teachers. I can use my knowledge to support students and teachers in providing instruction that is right in the ZPD of each student. The MRIS work, along with my Champion work, will really be an asset to our special education teachers. It will make me a better coach (both in instructional knowledge about math and in strategies to coach teachers) this year and for years to come.
