Make all your middle schoolers confident and competent mathematicians with this book, your accessible guide to teaching math to every learner in Grades 6-8. Focused on knocking down roadblocks to learning, this reader-friendly resource shows you how to use multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS)—a powerful, widely adopted framework for meeting each student's individual needs. You'll learn how to deliver high-quality, evidence-based math instruction; combine your instruction with meaningful assessment; and provide just-right supports that help students conquer their specific math struggles.

An essential guide for in-service educators—and an important resource for teachers in training—this book gives you the in-depth knowledge and practical tools you need to support every student's success in middle school math.

  • Implement MTSS to benefit all students. Develop and use tiered supports across your whole school, promote collaboration between general and special educators, and troubleshoot your MTSS.
  • Build foundational numeracy skills. Help your students strengthen the three pillars of numeracy that build algebraic proficiency.
  • Design and deliver effective math instruction. Use today's recommended practices to teach all students, and develop Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions that really help struggling learners.
  • Choose and use effective supports. Distinguish between differentiation, accommodation, and modification, and learn when and how to use them.
  • Use data to make decisions. Learn how to select and use screeners, diagnostic assessments, progress monitoring tools, and summative assessments—and use results to shape instruction.

PRACTICAL MATERIALS: More than a dozen downloadable forms help you plan for MTSS and implement what you learned from the book, vignettes and sample problems model best practices, and interviews with real-life educators brim with valuable advice on implementing MTSS in math education.
