Numeracy Consultants takes a back-to-basics approach to teaching mathematics. Our focus is on providing teachers with a research based math intervention curriculum that includes assessments and instructional resources to support RTI or MTSS interventions.
Our math intervention programs and assessment systems focus on basic and intermediate numeracy skills. Assessment is crucial to student success. We show teachers how to use our math assessments to develop basic skills and lay a foundation for more advanced concepts. Task analysis must be done to break down each concept into a smaller teachable skill.
We believe in a teaching philosophy that lays out a clear order of individual skills that must be mastered before students are ready for abstract concepts like multiple digit addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, and fractions.
We provide the resources that teachers need for a successful intervention program . Whether a school uses a Response to Intervention (RTI) model or a MTSS framework (Multi-Tier Systems of Support) our free math intervention programs will provide the support that teachers need. We also provide on-demand webinar/ trainings so teachers can have a quality professional development experience while learning how to implement our programs.
In many schools the idea of a RTI or MTSS is just assigning students more practice problems and worksheets. Students struggle with current skills because something is missing from their foundation.
We provide a math intervention curriculum for teachers which includes assessments, frameworks, learning materials, lessons plans, workbooks, and countless other materials .
In classrooms today, mathematics is often taught through procedures and memorization of a process. Students are shown how to do a procedure, they practice it many times but often there is no real understanding behind what they are doing.
Students may be able to solve problems in isolation, but when asked to apply that knowledge in a real world experience or context, they struggle to complete the task.
Many teachers are unaware that the strategies their instruction may focus more on processes and procedures than on conceptual understanding. When instruction is focused more on memorization then on conceptual understanding, large holes develop within the curriculum. This is especially true when a student already struggles with mathematics.
