Building foundational whole-number knowledge can help put K-5 students on the path to academic success and career readiness. Filling a gap for school practitioners, this book presents step-by-step guidelines for designing and implementing classwide, small-group, and individual interventions for mathematics difficulties. Effective procedures for screening, assessment, intervention selection, and progress monitoring are described and illustrated with detailed case vignettes. User-friendly features include 20 reproducible handouts and forms; the print book has a large-size format with lay-flat binding for easy photocopying. Purchasers get access to a Web page where they can download and print the reproducible materials.

"This book offers a fantastic synthesis of empirically supported practices that can improve K-5 mathematics instruction. From screening and progress monitoring to layers of instruction and intervention, each procedure is presented in a systematic way. The reader gets an understanding of what math skills and content students must learn and how to ensure they reach mastery. The book is filled with case examples, implementation checklists, and tables summarizing the evidence for specific tactics. For any educator or school practitioner who wants to bring precise instructional design into the classroom to benefit the learning of all students, this book is a powerful tool in the toolkit."--Amanda M. VanDerHeyden, PhD, Education Research and Consulting, Fairhope, Alabama
"There are very few works available that cover the content that our preservice teachers in mathematics need in such an extensive manner. From general curriculum to embedded principles of MTSS models like tiered intervention and assessment, this book provides key knowledge for educators working with students at risk in mathematics. The book is full of case study examples, checklists, rubrics, and intervention ideas. Having all of the resources in one place is invaluable, as many of us have had to `piece together' this information for our courses and professional development."--Erica S. Lembke, PhD, Department of Special Education, University of Missouri-Columbia
"Essential reading for both general and special educators who teach mathematics. The book provides a comprehensive overview of concepts central to evidence-based math instruction and intervention. The material is brought to life through unique case studies, practitioner-friendly reproducible forms, steps for implementing interventions, and rubrics to guide progress monitoring. Of special note, the authors include a variety of evidence-based assessments/interventions addressing the critical role of motivation in achievement. In an area with a dearth of accessible, research-based resources, this is sure to become a go-to book for school-based practitioners and administrators who strive to maximize math achievement for all students."--Ravit R. Stein, PhD, BCBA-D, Director of Psychological and Behavioral Consultation Services, EASTCONN Regional Education Service Center, Connecticut
