Math Computation: Increase Accuracy and Productivity Rates Via SelfMonitoring and Performance FeedbackMath 
In preparation for this intervention:
At the start of the intervention, the teacher meets with the student. The teacher shows the student a sample math computation worksheet and answer key. The teacher tells the student that the student will have the opportunity to complete similar math worksheets as time drills and chart the results. The student is told that he or she will win a reward on any day when the student’s number of correctly computed digits on the worksheet exceeds that of the previous day.
During each day of the intervention:

Collection of student math computation worksheets & matching answer keys (NOTE: Educators can use a free online application to create math computation worksheets and answer keys by using this free Math Worksheet Generator (http://www.interventioncentral.org/tools/mathworksheetgenerator)Sample of student progress monitoring chart http://www.interventioncentral.org/sites/default/wpcontent/uploads/sites/93/pdfs/pdfs_interventions/progress_monitor_graph_80_12.pdf

Directions for OnLine Creation of Worksheets with a Mix of Easy and Challenging Computation Problems (‘Interspersal Worksheets’)
Because the computer program generates new worksheets each time it is used, the teacher can enter the desired settings and in one sitting– create and print off enough worksheets and answer keys to support a six or eightweek intervention.

Math Computation: Promote Mastery of Math Facts Through Incremental RehearsalMath

During each day of the intervention:The tutor follows an incrementalrehearsal sequence each day when working with the student:
Daily review sessions are discontinued either when time runs out or when the student answers an ‘unknown’ math fact incorrectly 3 times.
