Informed Assessment for Differentiation in the Classroom

The mathematics educational experience is not working for many students. Add+Vantage Math Recovery responds to the need to meet high levels of accountability for all students to learn important mathematics. The theory and strategies from Math Recovery Early intervention are equally relevant and useful for classroom teachers.  Add+VantageMR empowers teachers to improve mathematics instruction by putting into practice new research in the areas of assessing, teaching and learning numbers.
