This website is designed to provide math intervention programs and resources for teachers. It is essential that all teachers have access to appropriate materials for their students. Classroom resources should never be dependent on the socioeconomic status of a school. Our goal is to find as many free or partially free resources as possible so this site can become a one stop reference for math intervention curriculum, resources, and assessments. We hope you enjoy using our website and if you come across a great resource please let us know about it.
The Primary Numeracy Intervention Program (K-3) is complete intervention system that is free. This is one of the few math intervention programs that includes a one on one diagnostic assessment that will provide you an instructional level for each area that the student is tested. The program provides learning materials, a leveled activities guide, frameworks, lessons plan template, workbooks, and several visual tools that are available for instruction.The program even includes a starter library for your lessons and a training webinar as well.
This a very in-depth (K-3) intervention program so you will need to watch the training webinar in order to understand how to use all of the pieces the program has to offer. This program has a similar approach to how we currently teach guided reading and has parallels with Reading Recovery.
Xtra Math is a math fact fluency program that helps students master addition, subtraction, multiplication and, division. These facts are the building blocks for a child's math education. Xtra Math is a free online program. All you need to do is sign up, create a class, and you are ready to begin. It takes around 10 mins to set up a class.
Great tool to help develop math fact fluency and all the teacher has to do is set up the account and the program takes care of the rest. Xtra Math is not an intense math intervention program, but for students who need mastery of the basic facts, it is the perfect tool.
ICT games is more of an online resource then a math intervention program. However, it is not the typical "math games" website. You cannot just assign the game and walk away. Most of the games are designed for the teacher to do along side with the student. A teacher could use the resources and games as a lesson and some of the games and activities can be at a very high level of thinking.
The games and activities can be used on any tablet or desktop. Here you will find free educational games aimed at children between 5 and 8 years old. The games are linked to the UK KS 1 and 2 curricula and the K-2 curriculum in the US.
Freckle is a partially free math program. It is a computer to child program where the computer does the "teaching" and the actual teacher is more of a manager of the program. It provides a diagnostic assessment and some free activities, but in order to have access to all the online assignments and lessons you need to paid subscription.
Freckle is offered to teachers for free, but the School Edition upgrade offers unlimited access to assignments, lessons, reports, and targeted benchmark assessments. Students sign in with their names and a class code. Though the free version is very limited, it can be helpful for a teacher who has minimal resources available.
EASY-CBM is a partially free intervention management resource for math. There is a reading component as well, but we will focus on math. It has both a lite and deluxe version. The lite version is free but does not offer the full scale of resources that the paid deluxe version does. It is designed to give teachers insight into which of their students may need additional instructional supports as well as to provide a means by which they can measure the effectiveness of their teaching.
The best way to familiarize yourself with this program/ management system is to sign up and "click" around to see if this type of resource that you are looking for. The lite version can be useful for tracking student data.
The Multiplicative Thinking Program (3-5) was designed by the same firm who designed the Primary Numeracy Assessment Program (K-3). The program solely focuses on multiplication and division. It comes with a diagnostics assessment that will enable a teacher to find the developmental level a student is thinking at during multiplicative situations. The program guides teachers on how to interpret the data and make an instructional plan for their students while tracking their data.
This program comes with many resources and there is a training webinar to show teachers how to administer the assessment and use all the learning resources. There are addition supplemental materials that you can purchase, but the program gives you more than enough materials to get started on an intervention.
Multiplication.com is exactly what it says. It works on multiplication and division facts. Multiplication.com practices math facts through a variety of games. However the games are all very similar and work on the memorization of math facts.
The best part of multiplication.com is the auto scoring tests. You can use these tests as both an assessment and practice for your students. This website runs a lot of ads, so sometimes it can run slow on certain devices because there are so many ads running at one time.
Again, if you are looking for an online practice for math facts, multiplication.com provide a lot of interactive ways for your students to practice their facts.
Math Playground is a huge website with a ton of online games and activities. Some of the games are very basic and some games require a high level of understanding.

One of the best parts of the website is the "Story Math" section. It is a blend of story problems and visual aids. The Story Math section is a really good tool that teachers can use to visualize story problems. Some of the story problems are at a very high level and can be use to challenge the "high flyers" that are in each classroom. This website has something for everyone.

These fun online math games cover all of the math fundamentals, including early math, basic and mixed operations, fractions, pre-algebra, dollars & cents and place value.
While teachers often use worksheets to practice math concepts that were taught in the classroom, these skill practice games actually have the same impact on the child. The interactive format keeps students engaged, interested and coming back for more and more practice This website has something for everyone!!
When it comes to games that develop true number sense there are not many websites that are better than Greg Tang Math. The games on this site are unlike many of the low level games that are out there. The games scaffold and develop a higher level of thinking. The website has a true commitment to number sense.
There is a wide variety of skills on this website but the best games and resources are for grades K-2. Philosophically this website goes well with the Primary Numeracy Intervention Program (K-3) that was mentioned above because of the focus on developing early numeracy and number sense.
Just to be clear Dreambox is a paid subscription adaptive computer to child program. However it does offer a teacher tools part that is free and these tools can very helpful tool for demonstration lessons and student practice when it is monitored.
