PALS Math has two basic coaching procedures: coaching and practice. During coaching, students work on a sheet of problems in the skill area (e.g., adding, subtracting with regrouping, number concepts, charts, and graphs) to which they have been assigned. The coach uses a sheet that contains a series of questions, differing by problem type, designed to guide the player. Coaches also use a correction procedure. Coaching usually lasts 15-20 minutes.

During practice, every student receives a mixed-problem worksheet containing the problem type just worked on, as well as easier types of problems. Students work independently for about two-thirds of the class period. Students then exchange papers and score each others' practice sheets. Practice lasts 5-10 minutes.

Students earn points for cooperating and constructing good explanations during coaching and for doing problems correctly during practice.

Materials are available for kindergarten through grade 6.
