"Jennifer Taylor-Cox’s newly revised edition is the complete toolbox for educators. Not only are the critical intervention components still included, but Jennifer also explains the rationale for integrating rigorous problem solving examples and explains why they should be part of a math intervention program. These problems, which correlate to Common Core concepts and Mathematical Practices, present opportunities for students to explore and develop strong mathematical reasoning and construct solid justification for their thinking, and are designed to assist educators in collecting pre- and post-data. This resource is a definite buy for any teacher developing a math intervention plan for students!" --Karren Schultz-Ferrell, Mathematics Consultant and Author, Columbus, Ohio
"This is an essential resource for differentiating mathematics instruction and providing targeted intervention for struggling students.
