    Our school uses Everyday Math K-12. Our Title and Special Ed kids struggle with this curriculum. We are trying to learn more about possible math interventions. We have a strong reading program and several reading interventions, but nothing extra for low achieving math students. Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Back in my special ed days, I used Skills Tutor, which is an online program where the teacher can monitor progress and assign specific lessons and assessments. Another I'm familiar with is called "Do the Math." That was a 30-lesson, 30-min per day small-group intervention with several different modules. It involved manipulatives, read-aloud books, and several other ways to help children build the concept. I liked parts of the program better than others, but I found it particularly successful with younger students.

    My school uses iLearn, which is an internet-based intervention program. I had 2 students use it last year. At first I thought it was really boring, and I was not happy with it. The kids were just given addition and subtraction facts over and over, but they really didn't seem to complain too much. When they took the winter MAP test, one of my special education students went from a 153 (kindergarten level) to a 185 (right at grade level). I think the repetition was exactly what he needed. Some other teachers hate it, but I was sold! (I found out that once they get past all of the boring facts, the program is more fun.) http://www.ilearn.com/

    We also use math fact boxes, which teach strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They are really simple to use, all of the materials are included, and the kids like the activities. http://www.origoeducation.com/the-box-of-facts/?mageloc=US

    Anything by James Martland is great for math intervention. I'm being trained in math recovery this year and we are using his work.
