The Development and Implementation of a Two-Year Mathematics Laboratory Program for Ninth Grade Low Achievers. A Two-Year Individual Practicum.
Cohen, James A.
The purpose of this study was to develop and implement a two-year mathematics laboratory program for ninth-grade low achievers. The laboratory program was designed to raise the mathematics skills of a selected group of low-achieving ninth graders at Washington High School, a rural urban school in the South Bend Community School Corporation, South Bend, Indiana. The objectives for each of the participating students sought to: increase the students' grade equivalent scores in computation skills, concept skills, problem solving skills, and total skills, and improve the students' attendance in mathematics by 15%. Comparisons of the Metropolitan Mathematics Achievement pre- and post-test scores and attendance reports revealed that each objective was met by 85.7% to 100% of the participants. The practicum treatment for the program was considered to be successful. (Author)
