1 MathMITT, Inc. Providers of essential math skill review programs, math manipulatives and instructional Technology HEADS UP daily math workouts (1 st – 4 th )

2  is NOT overwhelming to teachers  is NOT the daily lessons  is NOT drill and kill Heads Up: Heads Up:

3 Long- Term Memory Sight Sound Smell Taste Touch Meaning Emotion Sensory Memory 99% of what you take in, you sift out! Working Memory discarded & forgotten rehearsal Adapted from Brain Matters, Patricia Wolfe, ASCD, 2001

4 Ready, Set, Review “So, what should we see in an effective mathematics classroom? A deliberate and carefully planned reliance on ongoing, cumulative review of key skills and concepts Using cumulative review to keep skills and understandings fresh, reinforce previously taught material, and give students a change to clarify their understandings.”

5 TIME MEMORY RETENTION Without regular review or practice, long-term memory is not developed. Regular review develops and maintains long-term memory. Long term memory MEMORY RETENTION

6 Heads Up provides regular review to maintain memory of basic mathematical skills and concepts for Grades 1-4. Heads Up is:  comprehensive  systematic  user-friendly  affordable

7 STUDENT WORKBOOK SETS Two terms - 15 weeks per term 5 workouts per week Glossary Table of Measures TRANSPARENCIES 150 transparencies matched to daily workouts (also in digital format) TEACHER MANUAL Answers for daily workouts 12 tests (with answers) BUILDING BLOCKS Available Summer week math review program Componentsof HEADS UP math workouts Grades 1 - 4

18 Response to Intervention Our programs are used both at Tier 1 to supplement the core instructional mathematics curriculum and Tier 2 with follow-up Skill Builders. Using the programs ensure that more students are able to meet grade level norms without additional assistance because of the comprehensive, systematic review of essential basic skills and concepts. The weekly tracking provides frequent progress monitoring, thus identifying which students need additional instruction and review. This review is done with the Skill Builders.
