Gap Closing Resources

Gap Closing resources are designed for students who need additional support in mathematics. For each topic in the resource, there is a diagnostic and a set of intervention materials. Diagnostics are designed to uncover the typical problems students have with a specific topic. Each diagnostic can be used to tailor differentiated lessons as instructional decisions are being made for the struggling student.
