What funding types might be used to purchase this product?
This product is created to supplement classroom curriculum to improve educational outcomes for all students. Districts may be able to access several qualifying funding sources (e.g., ESSER, EANS, Title IA, IDEA). Contact USMRC if support is needed on how these products may meet specific requirements.
What is the Learning Framework in Number (LFIN)?
The Learning Framework in Number (LFIN) is a compilation of important research on number learning that is the heart of Math Recovery. This framework is used in many places around the world in programs to support the teaching and learning through first instruction, intervention, and enrichment. To learn more about the research underpinnings and effectiveness, visit research.
How can I learn more about the Learning Framework in Number (LFIN)?
The US Math Recovery Council (USMRC) offers a range of professional learning experiences for educators which deepens understanding and supports application of the LFIN. To learn more about how the USMRC can support your Math Recovery journey, visit professional development.
How many activities are within each module?
Each module has approximately 50-70 activities across the progression of subgoals.
How will a web-based resource via license support my instruction?
A web-based resource allows for easy accessibility and user interaction. It also ensures access to the most recent materials available in each module. When additional supports or activity enhancements occur, members receive immediate, up-to-date materials.
How will the companion materials support implementation?
The companion materials provide instructional settings as well as ready-to-use student activity boards. With the companion kit, educators can focus more of their time on student learning and implementation of activities and significantly less time on preparation.
When will companion materials be available for purchase?
Companion materials for the modules will be available for purchase Spring 2022 via the Math Recovery Store. A module subscription is a prerequisite for purchasing the companion kit.
