In this project, the Taped Problems math intervention was used with a second-grade student to attempt to increase basic math fact fluency. This intervention uses time delay, repeated practice, and corrective feedback to increase fluency in basic math operations, including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The project included a worksheet with math problems on it and a corresponding taped recording of each problem being read aloud with a delayed answer. The intervention focused specifically on “Addition to 20” problems. Progress was monitored using curriculum-based measurement and recording the number of problems the student answered correctly in a minute. The results indicated there was an increase of 14 problems correct per minute over the four weeks the intervention was given.
