Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006" is a new core curriculum for students in kindergarten through grade 6. "Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006" differs substantively from "Progress in Mathematics[C] 2000" in both content and assessment material. "Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006" uses a sequence of systematic lesson plans to teach mathematical concepts and skills. It incorporates the following features at each grade level: explicit instruction of mathematics content; development of conceptual understanding through a three-step process that begins with hands-on activities (concrete thinking to visual thinking to symbol use); fluency in numerical computation; problem solving; development of mathematical vocabulary; practice and review; and different types of assessment. Student textbooks, student workbooks, and teacher's editions are available for each grade level, as well as manipulatives and online practice exercises. One study of "Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006" met the what Works Clearinghouse (WWC) evidence standards. The study included 186 first grade students in eight classrooms across four schools located in New York and Pennsylvania. The WWC considers the extent of evidence for "Progress in Mathematics[C] 2006" to be small for math achievement. Progress in "Mathematics[C] 2006" was found to have no discernible effects on math achievement. (Contains 5 footnotes.) [This publication was produced by the What Works Clearinghouse.
