What it is...

TAI Mathematics is a unique, research-based approach to mathematical instruction for guaranteed results. TAI Math improves computation success through individualized instruction and cooperative learning. This program is the culmination of over 15 years of research at John’s Hopkins University into cooperative learning instructional processes.

What it does...

TAI Mathematics incorporates cooperative learning with individualized instruction in fundamental math concepts and operations. The program allows students to progress on an individual basis, while simultaneously integrating cooperative learning by forming groups of students working together to achieve team goals. This combination of interactive instruction with cooperative learning accelerates the achievement of all students, maximizes teaching and learning time, and enhances student motivation.

Six major research studies demonstrate:

  • A remarkable 2 to 1 ratio in achievement gains over control students
  • Significant gains in self-esteem, social adjustment, classroom behavior, and math attitudes
  • Accelerated progress for ALL ability levels (regular classrooms, gifted, Special Ed, Title I, etc.)

How it works...

The uniqueness of TAI Math lies in the way the program is structured and implemented. The single-focus Student Books are age-neutral, allowing you to tailor your instruction to individual student needs. Classroom Sets are comprised of different configurations of Student Books, based on the concepts most appropriate for that grade level.

TAI Math students:

  • Are assigned to 1 of 13 Student Books based on a comprehensive placement test
  • Work in mixed-level, competitive teams
  • Check one another's work, motivating each other to work quickly and independently
  • Give and score practice tests, certifying classmates as ready for the next level

How it works for you...

Resulting from the integration of math curriculum instruction and cooperative learning, TAI Math was developed with the concept of optimizing teacher time in mind - by minimizing time spent on routine correcting and management, while maximizing time spent working with small groups and individuals.
