  2. 3. <ul><li>Screen all students to identify those at risk for potential math difficulties. </li></ul><ul><li>Instructional materials for interventions should focus on whole numbers in K-5 and on rational numbers in grades 4-8. </li></ul><ul><li>Instruction during the intervention should be explicit and systematic. Includes: models for problem solving, verbalization of thought processes, guided practice, corrective feedback, and frequent cumulative review. </li></ul><ul><li>Interventions should include instruction on solving word problems that is based on common underlying structures. </li></ul><ul><li>Intervention materials should include opportunities for students to work with visual representations of math ideas </li></ul><ul><li>Interventions at all grade levels should devote about 10 min. in each session to building fluent retrieval of basic arithmetic facts. </li></ul><ul><li>Monitor progress of students receiving supplemental instruction and other students who are at risk. </li></ul><ul><li>Include motivational strategies in tier 2 and tier 3 interventions. </li></ul>Evidence
