What Works Clearinghouse
"Cognitive Tutor[R]", a full-year course, covers organizing single variable data, simplifying linear expressions, mathematical modeling, solving systems with linear equations, problem-solving using proportional reasoning, and powers and exponents. Students work at their own pace to develop problem-solving skills. The duration of each lesson can vary, depending on the length of a school's class period. Generally, three periods a week are for classroom activities using the "Cognitive Tutor[R]" text, and two are spent in the computer lab using the "Cognitive Tutor[R]" software.
