NIFDI has a long history of providing the Gold Standard for training in Direct Instruction programs. Our trainers have trained tens of thousands of educators throughout the world to successfully implement DI.
Implementing Corrective Mathematics
Corrective Mathematics is a remedial system that solves a wide range of problems for struggling year 5-year 12 students, even if they have failed with other approaches. Explicit, step-by-step lessons are grouped into separate modules that may be taught separately or concurrently to customize instruction for particular student needs. The program contains modules for addition; subtraction; multiplication; division; basic fractions; fractions, decimals, percents; and ratios and equations. Upon completion of one or more of the modules, students are armed with the basic strategies they need to access conventional math instruction with success.
Corrective Mathematics is typically needed by older students whose math performance is characterized by a weak grasp of the basics, lack of facility with math facts, inaccurate computation, and a lack of strategies for problem-solving. The program is effective for students with poor attention and poor recall of directions or others who meet the criteria to receive special services. With a high success rate, frequent teacher feedback, and built-in opportunities to earn reinforcement throughout each lesson, even students with histories of failure remain motivated and on task as they master fundamental math concepts and skills.
