1. Participants will learn about specific recommendations provided by What Works Clearinghouse to address the needs of students struggling in mathematics through focused interventions. 2. Participants discuss how to carry out each recommendation. 3. Participants will develop strategies based on these recommendations for teaching specific topics of mathematics in grades 6-12.

Students struggling with mathematics need interventions that mitigate and prevent mathematics difficulties. In this workshop we will discuss evidence-based recommendations that address the challenges of teaching mathematics to students in grades 6 through 12. participants will learn about specific recommendations to address the needs of these students through focused interventions; discuss how to carry out each recommendation and overcome potential roadblocks to implementing the recommendations; review examples illustrating specific intervention strategies for different recommendations, and develop strategies based on these recommendations for teaching specific topics of middle school mathematics.
