The purpose of this study was to determine if the Add+Vantage Math Recovery program accelerates the math progress of below grade level struggling math students through effective direct math instruction and moves the student closer to grade level expectations. This research examined the math growth demonstrated by students through Add+Vantage Math Recovery structuring assessment scores and the impact it had on closing the achievement gap. Participants in the intervention group were third grade students in the researcher’s math class. After gathering baseline math data to determine the students’ areas of need, instruction focused on meeting the individual needs of each student by focusing on the five essential math components spatial patterns, finger patterns, combinations and partitions of 5, 10 and 20 with materials, combinations and partitions of 5, 10 and 20 without materials, and bare number problems without materials.
