# Math Intervention

#### The Math Efficiency System is designed to help students acquire the concepts and skills typically taught in the middle grades.

#### The system also is appropriate for use in GED programs and Adult Basic Education where basic mathematics skills are targeted.

#### The Math Efficiency System consists of 34 distinct topic areas as follows:

- Basic Addition
- Basic Subtraction
- Basic Multiplication
- Basic Division
- Advanced Addition
- Advanced Subtraction
- Advanced Multiplication
- Advanced Division

- Fraction Concepts
- Mixed Number Concepts
- Fractions
- Decimal Concepts
- Decimals
- Percents
- Estimation
- Perimeter & Area
- Mixed Numbers

- Percents
- Charts and Graphs
- Integer Operations
- Rational Operations

- Functional Concepts
- Linear Equations
- Descriptive Statistics

- Number Concepts
- Sets and Variables
- Linear Inequalities
- Powers and Roots
- Monomials
- Polynomials
- Factoring
- Quadratic Equations
- Graphing Linear Equations

#### Teaching Model

Each lesson begins with a brief tutorial followed by a practice set. High quality corrective feedback is provided for incorrect answers. The practice set also provides instructional assistance when appropriate. At the completion of a practice set a performance report is given and the student then has the option of electing additional practice or returning to the main menu. All practice items are randomly selected (without replacement) from large item banks.

#### Diagnostic Test

The Math Efficiency System includes a Diagnostic Test that will automatically place the student at the appropriate skill level.

#### Instructional Uses

The Math Efficiency System can be used in the following ways:

- Review and practice of previously learned topics
- Supplementary instruction
- Instruction on topics missed due to absence
- Remediation for students who are behind
- Independent study
