About Math Recovery® Virtual Workshops

These professional development virtual workshops focus on early numeracy development. They support elementary educators, special education instructors, math interventionists, and math coaches in diagnosing and advancing student understanding and numeracy development. These support workshops will be interactive with a USMRC instructional coach and include content review, videos, and group discussion. Depending on the workshop, the length will be 60 or 90 minutes long.

  • General Workshops (60 - 90 minutes): Intended audience: teachers, coaches, interventionists and administrators. No previous Math Recovery experience necessary
  • Prerequisite Workshops (60 - 90 minutes): Intended audience: teachers, coaches, interventionists and administrators who have previously taken Add+VantageMR® courses

General Workshop Topics

Workshops listed below require no previous Math Recovery experience

  • Beyond Fingers! Fact Fluency in Addition and Subtraction
    This workshop explores research-based strategies that develop students’ fluency with facts. Participants will be challenged with new ways to help students of any age move beyond counting by ones to solve basic addition and subtraction tasks. This interactive session is designed for those new to Math Recovery and does not require prior course certification.
  • Mental Math: Developing Strategies for Addition and Subtraction
    Mental math and conceptual understanding of place value are foundational for learning increasingly complex mathematics. Participants will explore strategies that will strengthen relational thinking and support students' success on addition and subtraction tasks that require regrouping. This interactive workshop is designed for those new to Math Recovery and does not require prior course certification.
  • Mental Math: Strategies for Multiplication
    Mental math and conceptual understanding of multiplication are foundational for learning increasingly complex mathematics. Explore strategies to strengthen relational thinking and support habituation of basic math facts in ways that move students toward higher level algebraic thinking.

Workshops for Add+VantageMR® certified educators

All workshops listed below require certification in AVMR1

  • Models and Assessment: Number Words and Numerals
    This 60-minute interactive workshop guides participants through administration, coding, and analyzing of the Add+VantageMR® Number Words and Numerals assessment. Participants will deepen their understanding of the decisions needed when presenting the assessment tasks to attain greater efficiency towards gathering meaningful data to drive instruction based on learning trajectories within the model.
  • Early Number Words and Numerals Instruction (purple book)
    This 90-minute workshop explores Number Words and Numerals (NWN) learning trajectory to support instruction in early Addition and Subtraction. Participants will explore instructional strategies, activities, and settings.
  • AVMR with Early Childhood in Mind.
    This workshop explores research-based strategies that develop foundational early numeracy knowledge and understanding for our youngest learners. Participants will engage in activities to help support young students in early structuring, counting and number words and numerals activities. We will also talk about those classroom opportunities such as centers or transition times that can be leveraged to impact student early numeracy understanding.
  • Model and Assessment: Addition and Subtraction Assessment
    This 90-minute interactive workshop guides participants through administration, coding, and analyzing of the Add+VantageMR® Addition and Subtraction assessment. Participants will deepen their understanding of the decisions needed when presenting the assessment tasks to attain greater efficiency towards gathering meaningful data to drive instruction based on learning trajectories within the model.
  • Subtraction Instruction with Unitary Strategies
    This 90-minute workshop examines the learning trajectory with subtraction as it relates to instruction within Constructs 1-3. Participants will explore instructional settings and tasks to develop and enhance intentional instruction as it relates to subtraction.
  • Subtraction Instruction with Composite Strategies
    This 90-minute workshop explores intentional instruction that promotes students use of key combinations/partitions and relational thinking to solve subtraction tasks.
  • Model and Assessment: Structuring Number
    This 90-minute interactive workshop guides participants through administration, coding, and analyzing of the Add+VantageMR® Structuring Number assessment. Participants will deepen their understanding of the decisions needed when presenting the assessment tasks to attain greater efficiency towards gathering meaningful data to drive instruction based on learning trajectories within the model.
  • Early Structuring Number Instruction
    This 90 - minute interactive workshop will deepen understanding of the research-based teaching progression for Early Structuring Number and how it supports movement within Addition and Subtraction Constructs. Participants will explore instructional settings and tasks that will develop and enhance intentional instruction within this domain.
  • Structuring Numbers to 10: Instruction in Key Combinations and Partitions
    This 90 - minute interactive workshop supports teachers' understanding of the research-based teaching progression for Structuring Numbers to 10. Examine key combinations and partitions and how intentional instruction will help support students in becoming composite thinkers.
  • Structuring Numbers to 20: Instruction with the Bead Rack
    This 90-minute workshop is an extension of Structuring Numbers to 10 and continues an exploration of a research-based instructional progression for building fact fluency. Come ready to discuss benefits for students who apply structuring knowledge with facility and work to refine instruction using the bead rack. This workshop will focus on prompts that actively engage students' inquiry mode.
  • Structuring Numbers to 20: Focus on Subtraction
    This 90 - minute interactive workshop is designed to deepen understanding of the research-based teaching progression for Structuring Numbers to 20, focusing on subtraction. Participants will explore how to leverage key combinations and partitions in specific ranges to develop relational thinking and enhance intentional instruction using subtraction as partitions.

All workshops listed below require certification in AVMR2

  • Model and Assessment: Place Value Assessment
    This 90-minute interactive workshop guides participants through administration, coding, and analyzing of the Add+VantageMR® Place Value assessment. Participants will deepen their understanding of the decisions needed when presenting the assessment tasks to attain greater efficiency towards gathering meaningful data to drive instruction based on learning trajectories within the model.

All workshops listed below require certification in AVMR Fractions

  • Infusing AVMR Fractions into Lesson Planning Series
    Addressing Unfinished Learning while planning for grade level content has always been a challenge for classroom teachers. In AVMR Fractions you learned diagnostic tasks to determine students’ progress through the Development of Fractions Concepts. These interactive sessions will explore planning a grade level lesson in which fractions knowledge may impact success. We will consider specific tasks to address unfinished learning within a range of constructs. Participants attending all three sessions in the series will:
    • Differentiate lessons for the range of prior knowledge encountered in the classroom
    • Observe, practice, and provide and receive feedback on the development of differentiated lessons
    • Gain understanding of a process that can be used in any mathematics domain
    The workshop is designed to allow participants to join one or all sessions to experience the process in action.
