Secondary (6-12) Focused Concepts for Intervention

Middle and high school students frequently struggle with common foundational concepts in mathematics. These foundations include multi-digit number concepts, computation, decimals, fractions, and integers. Students often lack conceptual understanding of these ideas leading to erosion of skills needed for advanced mathematics. This workshop focuses on strategies and approaches to reinforce and advance student fluency with these ideas. Formative assessment will be highlighted throughout the sessions. Ready to implement resources and activities will be shared.
