A revolutionary approach to math intervention.
For students working to gain ground who are two or more years behind in math, time is of the essence. Reteaching every partially developed concept or skill is simply not possible or effective.
Math 180® is an engaging and motivating digital math intervention with flexible print for students in middle school who need to build foundational skills to close skills gaps and to successfully transition to Algebra.
Math 180 ensures that students who struggle with mathematics believe that success is possible, and that their teachers have cutting-edge tools to help them meet rigorous new standards.
With implementation fidelity of Math 180, Math 180 students have demonstrated more than 2 times the annual expected growth. For many students they see 100+ quantile growth in a single year.
Teachers are the key force behind students’ math success, and MATH 180 provides an ecosystem of support to help teachers do what they do best.
The program creates experiences designed to show students that they can learn math, their efforts pay off, and math has purpose in their lives.

Math 180 teachers partner with technology to help maximize teacher effectiveness. Students benefit from this partnership by receiving consistent instruction that is fully optimized and allowing them to master skills and advance at an accelerated pace.
HMH intervention solutions have been proven to work. Don’t just take our word for it.
In one study, students using Math 180 experienced significant achievement growth in one year of implementation, with an average gain of 184 Quantile measures.
Students using Math 180 in a comparison study had an average of at least 1.75x the score increase vs. non–Math 180 students on their assessments.
Use Math 180 to make the most of eligible ESSER funding.
Success in Math 180 goes far beyond test scores. When students witness the results of their hard work, they believe in their own ability and understand that math has purpose in their future.
Instruction begins with a "Do Now" exercise to encourage thinking and make connections to prior topics.
Students break into two groups. In one group, the teacher focuses on building understanding, reasoning, and communication skills.
Students use the adaptive software for additional instruction and scaffolded practice with routine and non-routine problems.
Math 180 focuses on the content that matters and equips students for whom math is not yet a source of joy and inspiration with the knowledge, reasoning, and confidence to thrive in algebra.
Math 180 is built from a carefully sequenced and paced progression of content with high-interest themes that are designed for students who lack numerical understanding and reasoning skills. The Math 180 Block Series focuses on rebuilding key concepts of numbers and operations that enable students to rebuild foundational skills using algebraic thinking to develop relationships between operations and with real numbers.
Math 180 is a comprehensive system of instruction, assessment, and professional development designed to help students who have not yet experienced success in mathematics learning thrive in algebra. Built with the student in mind, the learning experience is a uniquely motivating and fun way to accelerate to grade-level ability.
The Student Dashboard gives students access to their recent achievements and instructional zones, allowing them ownership over their learning experience.
Develop Mathematical Practices by using simulations. These simulations are found once per block and provide students the opportunity to explore math concepts, make decisions, and explain their reasoning.
Explore Zone anchor videos situate learning in relevant ways and promote critical thinking.
Direct instruction videos and adaptive practice content in the Learn Zone help promote progression and develop mastery.
In the Success Zone, students apply what they’ve learned to more difficult tasks. Items are designed around those that students will encounter on assessments, yet the experience is built like a game board – designed for fun.
Each block or unit of instruction opens with a lesson about the anchor video and how math is critical to success in a unique field.
Each lesson ends with an Exit Ticket so teachers can quickly understand which students have mastered a concept and which require more support.
Game-day lessons allow students to play engaging and challenging partner games that develop critical mathematical practice.
Math 180 empowers teachers to deliver effective math instruction. Teachers have access to lesson planning tools, smart data, easier differentiation, and professional support resources that are comprehensive, cohesive, and convenient—everything they need to do what they do best.
The Teaching Guide provides daily step-by-step instruction to develop understanding through discussion and problem solving.
Math 180 on Ed provides an all-in-one online platform that includes all digital teaching, lesson planning, professional development, and progress monitoring tools as well as support resources.
Teacher Display Tools are interactive lessons that provide teacher-led instruction for each block, topic, and lesson.
Math 180 includes a comprehensive and robust suite of high-quality assessment tools to monitor progress, differentiate instruction, and keep students on track for success.
Ongoing Diagnostic and Formative Assessment allows the software and teachers to adjust instruction to meet the needs of each student.
Curriculum-Embedded Assessment like mSkills assesses for mastery of key standards-aligned concepts taught during group instruction.
Performance Tasks are scaffolded throughout the program to help students gain extensive practice with application tasks.
Mindset Scan assessment from Mindset Works® tracks student mindsets about math and their own abilities.
HMH Growth Measure uses the Quantile Framework for Mathematics as a diagnostic tool to place students in Math 180 and to monitor their progress toward algebra readiness. Administer the online Growth Measure test three times throughout the year to track overall growth in math understanding.
Every Math 180 topic features professional learning from Math Solutions®, founded by Marilyn Burns. Embedded interactive tools help teachers unpack the learning progressions and practice using visual models, games, and more. There is also on-board training, implementation support, and professional coaching available to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Into Math's comprehensive core program for students in Grades K–8 was built to monitor, predict, and propel growth using a student-centered, outcomes-driven approach.
Waggle® for Grades K–8 offers supplemental practice and instruction that immerses students in personalized learning and maximizes teachers' time.
"My students are dreaming again, and they are doing things that so many people have told them that they can't do."
