CPM Study Team Roles and Team Support
Resource Manager: • Gets necessary materials and supplies for the team and makes sure that the team cleans up at the end of the period. • Manages nonmaterial resources for the team, seeking input from each member. • Calls the teacher over when the whole team has a question. 
Facilitator: • Helps their team get started by having someone read the task aloud. • Makes sure each person understands the task and knows how to get started. • Makes sure everyone can explain the team’s answer. 
Recorder/Reporter: • Shares team’s results with the class. • Serves as a liaison with the teacher during a ‘Huddle.’ • Makes sure each team member records the work. • Organizes the team presentation and assigns the parts for the presentation. 
Task Manager: • Keeps the team focused and on task discussing math. • Intervenes if anyone is off task. • Articulates the reasons behind the math statements that the team makes by repeating what the team is saying.

Mathematics Intervention Strategies
Summary of Intervention Strategies to Support Students Struggling with Math:
 Use of structured peerassisted learning activities involving heterogeneous ability groupings.
 Use systematic and explicit instruction using visual and graphic representations.
 Modify instruction based on data from formative assessments of students (such as classroom discussions or quizzes).
 Provide opportunities for students to think aloud while they work.
 Share and discuss formative assessment data results with students.
 Instruction during the intervention should be explicit and systematic.
 Interventions should include instruction on solving word problems that are based on common underlying structures. This includes instruction on how to reading math problems.
 Be intentional regarding teaching students the eight Standards of Mathematical Practices.
 Increase opportunities for productive student discourse.
 Provide explicit instruction on writing in mathematics. For example, explaining answers and the processes taken to answer mathematical problems in writing.
In addition to the CPM resources below, we also offer the Math Tutorial Lab courses to support students with their middle school math courses. For information on the tutorial labs and to view the curriculum maps, please visit the middle school tutorial lab page.
