About the class

Math Intervention is designed to help strengthen number sense, computation skills, geometry, data and measurement, and algebraic thinking. This program uses direct whole/small group instruction and using technology. Placement was determined by curriculum coaches and administrators, and previous teachers' input based on: academic grades, K-PREP and MAP tests.

All students are categorized as follows:

  • Tier 1 = student is on grade-level. No intervention needed.
  • Tier 2= student is 1-2 levels below grade level. Intervention is needed.
  • Tier 3= student is 3 or more levels below grade level. Intervention is needed.
    • This class is considered Tier 3.


  • Students may go to and complete...

  • Students can earn between 0 and 5 points per day depending upon how many lessons on MobyMax are passed. If a student passes 3 lessons in a day, he or she will receive 3 out of 5 points. Students may also do a 5-minute session of Fact Fluency in the place of 1 lesson each day.
  • Students may also work on math homework in class from their Tier 1 and 2 teachers. Many students may have to progress monitor through FastBridge in class as well.
