Title I Math Program Goals and Description
The goal of the Title I Math program is to accelerate the learning of students who are achieving below grade level in mathematics. These students are identified for services based on Multi-criteria by the Title I math teacher.
Math Program Delivery Methods
The teacher works to determine students’ current understanding in mathematics. The assessments the teachers administer are utilized to inform the teachers' instruction. The Title I teachers incorporate knowledge about their students’ current understandings into their planning and teaching.
The intervention math program use at BCIS is Number Worlds. Number Worlds is an intensive intervention program that focuses on students who are one or more grade levels behind in elementary mathematics. It provides all the tools teachers need to assess students’ abilities, individualize instruction, build foundational skills and concepts, and make learning fun. Number Worlds is a research- and standards based intervention math curriculum intended to develop student math proficiency for all students. The program incorporates the findings of several different types of research:
