Boosting Math Fluency Through Class-Wide Intervention

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. examine the evidence of a class-wide multiplication intervention.
  2. consider the effects of core intervention components of feedback, cover-copy-compare, and repeated practice on students’ fluency and strategy use.
  3. identify how to consult with teachers on providing effective class-wide math interventions.


Effective class-wide fluency interventions are a low-cost method to practice targeted skills and are recommended as a component of core mathematics instruction. This presentation will discuss the relationships between fluency, strategy use, and researcher-provided feedback for improving students’ math skills in a class-wide multiplication intervention. The discussion will be guided by data from a randomized controlled trial and will focus on practical implications for intervention.
