After pouring through articles and suggestions on how to set up a math intervention class (MATH RTI), I found the following three components of intervention to be the most recurring:

**Step 1 - Assess your students with a* *basick skills assessment**. ** *

__Math Fluency Practice – 10 minutes__

Have students practice basic operations for about 10 minutes each day. Start with addition then move to subtraction, multiplication and division. After that it can be fractions, decimals, etc.

Here are some ways to focus on math fluency in your class:

__Problem- Solving Practice__

You can use any word problems from your core materials or make up your own. It is highly recommended that students work intensively with problem-solving during intervention. The suggested sequence is to: 1) show students one problem from start to finish, 2) work together on a second similar problem and then 3) give them a third problem using the same operation. Pick one problem-solving strategy and have students use it consistently.

__Individual practice to address student's missing skills__

Once you figure out where each student is, they should work on the skills that will help get them to grade level. www.IXL.com or www.easycbm.com can help identify which skills students should work on. Practice could be done online through the IXL website or you can gather materials to help students practice. Check out the math links page to find other supporting Websites.
