By presenting a discussion about Response to Intervention in mathematics this book provides teachers with guidelines to all that is involved with mathematics instructional programmes

"The authors do a great job of blending ideas from mathematics education and the National Mathematics Panel Report with special education research. This is a great resource for those starting an RTI mathematics program."
—Russell Gersten, Professor Emeritus, University of Oregon
Director, Instructional Research Group

"Riccomini and Witzel have assembled a straightforward, well-organized, and systematically presented text that will be popular with inservice and preservice teachers alike."
—Kimberly Bright, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Special Education
Shippensburg University


Boost academic achievement for all students in your mathematics classroom!


Response to Intervention (RTI) is a system for assessment and instruction that has promising applications for teaching mathematics. This exciting new resource from Paul J. Riccomini and Bradley S. Witzel leads the way in applying RTI to mathematics instruction by offering guidelines for improving learning for all students, especially those who have learning disabilities or are struggling with mathematics content.


Drawing from evidence-based models, this guide begins with a comprehensive discussion of the RTI framework and the types of interventions appropriate within an RTI system for mathematics. The authors describe how the three tiers can be implemented in specific math areas and provide examples of RTI procedures illustrated in case studies. Aligned with the needs identified in the National Mathematics Advisory Panel final report and the IES practice guide, this book includes:



  • Intervention strategies for specific mathematics areas, such as number sense, fractions, problem solving, and more

  • Procedures for teaching math using systematic and explicit instruction as an approach to assessment, instructional planning, and evaluation

  • Descriptions of essential components to consider when designing and implementing RTI in mathematics

  • Guidelines for teaching math vocabulary


This timely resource provides tools and strategies that educators can immediately implement to help students achieve increased critical thinking skills and academic success.
