Practice for Student to Acquire Mastery


  • Work through enough Lesson Practice pages over time to build a clear understanding and then progress to the Systematic Review pages. When the student demonstrates mastery of a lesson concept, they proceed to the Lesson Test and then to the next lesson. Students do not work every page in the lesson if mastery is evident.
  • Work monitored and observed closely by the teacher

Proceed after Student Demonstrates Mastery


  • Has student “teach back” concepts to peers and/or teacher to demonstrate mastery
  • Reviews individual student scores of Lesson Practice pages, Systematic Reviews pages, Lesson and Test data to determine student understanding and retention of math concepts
  • Records daily scores on the individual Student Progress Monitoring Form


  • Graphs Unit Pre/Post Tests
