The Math Intervention Specialist certificate program will prepare K-12 teachers to identify students who need assistance in mathematics and to address the needs of these students through assessment-informed and focused interventions.

Participants will learn to identify students’ concept understanding and areas needing further development using quantifiable and research-based assessments.    Teachers will:

  • implementing research-based teaching methods;
  • effectively implement the use of manipulatives and models to maximize student learning in mathematics;
  • research and implement assessment-based and focused interventions;
  • implement continual progress monitoring through the use of data analysis and documentation of student learning; and
  • provide the leadership necessary to develop, implement, support, and maintain an appropriate math RTI program.

Completion of this Certificate requires  four UMF courses:

  • EDU 524 Advanced Math Methods (for K-8) OR EDU 561 Methods for Middle/Secondary Mathematics Education (for 7-12)
  • EDU 526 Assessment Course & Research-based Intervention Practices
  • EDU 527 Using Data for Teaching and Learning in Support of All Students in Mathematics
  • EDU 528 Leading the RTI Process in Mathematics
