Add+VantageMR® I: Math Recovery Strategies for the Classroom 
Prerequisite 
MATH 302 or MATH 304 
Course Outline 
Course Outline 
Description 
Add+VantageMR® (AVMR): Math Recovery® Strategies for Elementary Classrooms 1 includes dynamic, diagnostic, individual assessments in number words and numerals, structuring numbers, and addition and subtraction strategies. The assessment, data collecting, and teaching tools accelerate the educator's ability to recognize the students' current levels of numeracy understanding to make datadriven instructional decisions. AVMR is beneficial for anyone working or supervising others in mathematics. It is most appropriate for prekindergarten through elementary educators.
