What Educators Are Saying

This is the best professional development opportunity I have taken in my career. It was the best learning experience because I learned how children learn and develop mathematical skills and concepts. I feel very knowledgeable after taking this course. Thank You

Course Participant Rapid City, SD

This course was extremely beneficial to me, in how I assess, design lessons and teach students. Course 2 helped me connect a lot of the math thinking from Course 1 and from previous years of study and practice. I am looking forward to using the diagnostic assessments more and to really use the progressive mathematization to help design highly effective lessons.

Course Participant Rapid City, SD

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.

Above and beyond: combined theory and practice that I can use in my classroom tomorrow.

3rd Grade Teacher De Pere, WI
  • This course was wonderful. I really enjoyed getting all of the background information about how students develop in their mathematical thinking. I also enjoyed being able to practice the assessments and discuss it during class.

    First Grade Teacher Eagan, MN
  • This course was extremely relevant to student achievement in math, identifying the problem areas, and addressing them. This course was so much more valuable that just about any other math training I have every received!

    Course Participant College Station, TX
  • I think this will greatly impact my teaching. Already, I can pinpoint why students are struggling with certain objectives or concepts. I now know how to teach them to gain the cognitive shift to go from one construct to another.

    Course Participant Amarillo, TX
  • Add+VantageMR gives me an in-depth look into each student's math abilities. It will have a great personal impact on each of my struggling math students.

    Course Participant College Station, TX
  • These AVMR courses provide us with such valuable information about what students need as foundational skills. Determining the contruct a student is in allows for teachers to meet the needs of students exactly where they are at and we were given the tools and materials to execute it immediately in our classroom with our students. The benefit of these courses cannot be overstated.

    Course Participant Spokane, WA
  • As usual, you have blown me away with all the new information that is so relevant to teaching children fractions. I will be working with a group of 4th graders and am looking forward to trying the activities and moving fraction thinking forward. I am in the process of doing AVMR 1 and AVMR 2 training in my district and am also blown away with how much all of this work is connecting. The facilitators were wonderful. Thanks for all your help.

  • Diagnostically, the MRIS assessments are the very best I have seen for math (I am a former School Psychologist). The intensive training and hours required might hinder broad training of local district teachers/consultants/interventionists.

    Course Participant Muskegon, MI
  • The Math Recovery classes are the BEST pd I have encountered. It is research based, diagnostic and prescriptive. I appreciate that I'm taught not only how to figure out what a child knows, but given guidance in how to choose what should be next for that student.

    Course Participant Spokane, WA
  • My classroom practices in mathematics will be impacted greatly because of this course. I feel confident implementing the activities and differentiating them for the different levels of students in my classroom. I also feel that I will be able to notice many things in my informal observations of students that will give me insight into their mathematical thinking.

    Course Participant Massilon, OH
  • I have learned more in this class than any of my college courses. This taught me so much about how move a child's mind of thinking to the next level.
