Acceleration for Students Talented in Mathematics. SMESG Working Paper No. 19.
Begle, E. G.
This paper reviews and synthesizes the results from 42 research reports dealing with acceleration of mathematics programs for talented junior high school students. The effects of acceleration and enrichment are compared, and it is concluded that acceleration is preferable. The question of optimal grade level for initiating accelerated programs, and that of the advisability of providing slower paced programs for low achievers are raised. Annotations are provided for each of the reports reviewed. Each annotation gives bibliographic information, a brief description of the study, and a list of findings. (SD)
