Program Focus: Corrective Mathematics

CorrectiveMathCorrective Mathematics, available from McGraw-Hill Education, is a remedial system that solves a wide range of problems for struggling older students, even if they have failed with other approaches. These intervention programs feature explicit, step-by-step lessons that are grouped into separate modules that may be taught separately or concurrently to customize instruction for particular student needs. The program contains modules for addition; subtraction; multiplication; division; basic fractions; fractions, decimals, percents; and ratios and equations. Upon completion of one or more of the modules, students are armed with the fundamental strategies they need to access conventional math instruction with success.

NIFDI recommends the use of Corrective Mathematics with older students (Grades 4 and up) whose math performance is characterized by a weak grasp of the basics, lack of facility with math facts, inaccurate computation, and a lack of strategies for problem solving, as opposed to using the developmental series, Connecting Math Concepts.
