# Response to Intervention in Math

- Paul J. Riccomini - The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
- Bradley S. Witzel - Winthrop University, USA

Each chapter begins with a brief description of how RTI can be implemented in various areas of maths and presents multiple examples of RTI procedures that are illustrated by various case studies. Guidelines in each chapter address common concerns and provide suggestions for multiple interventions related to the specific maths areas.

The authors explain the need for effective interventions and include:

- The types of interventions that are appropriate within an RTI system for mathematics

- Intervention examples in the context of small group instruction

- A call for increased research

*"Does a great job of blending ideas from mathematics education and the National Mathematics Panel Report with special education research. A great resource for those starting an RTI mathematics program."*

*"Finally, a scholarly and practical text to help administrators and teachers learn about and institute Response to Intervention in math! Riccomini and Witzel have assembled a straightforward, well-organized, and systematically presented text that will be popular with inservice and preservice teachers alike. It is easy to follow and not overwhelming. As a teacher educator, I am always searching for a text that has utility for later use, and this is such a book! This is one of those rare textbooks that teachers will use long after their course on effective instruction."*

*"The most comprehensive RTI book for mathematics that I have seen to date. The importance of choosing a research-based, effective, balanced core program cannot be overstated. By following the guidelines in this book, districts can make good, sound decisions."*

**Great Falls Public Schools, MT**

*"This book hits the right balance between being practical and research driven. It provides scientific, research-based instruction in mathematics, show that RTI can focus on more than just reading. It's a tour de force!"*

**Lancaster County School District, SC**

*"This book is well written and well organized. I found the list of web sites for math programs and interventions of great use. I highly recommend ***Response to Intervention in Math***."*
