Introduction and The Why

Recommended Reading

The book "Mathematics RTI: A Problem-Solving Approach to Creating an Effective Model" by David Allsopp, Patricia Alvarez McHatton, Sharon Nichole Estock Ray and Jennie L. Farmer was instrumental in this pilot.  All pilot members had a copy and read the book.
