What is math response to invention (RTI)? RTI is an intervention strategy in which interventions are arranged in tiers. Although it is commonly used for improving reading ability, it can also be used to increase student performance in math.
Tier 1 is whole class intervention. Tier 2 involves intervention for students that need even more assistance with grasping an idea. Tier 3 is for students that need more intensive practice. Progress monitoring is done on a regular basis to assess student performance.
Lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of a variety of learners and learning styles. Students that grasp math concepts easily might begin with abstract math concepts.
Students that need extra practice can complete task cards that match their ability.
Instruction for tier two or tier three students can begin with manipulatives or step-by-step illustrated directions.
Students tend to respond well to this layered intervention technique.
