Administered to the students were a math attitude questionnaire and a math pretest on basic math skills to determine the students' attitude toward math and to determine the students' performance level. Mental Math activities, math games design contests, in-class competitions, grade level competition, computer, calculators, systematic reviews, student-teacher interaction, and projects were used to help increase students' interest and to increase math achievement. This study includes the following chapters: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Study of the Problem"; (3) "Anticipated Outcomes and Evaluation Instruments"; (4) "Solution Strategy"; and (5) "Results, Conclusions and Recommendations".
