Destination Math. What Works Clearinghouse Intervention Report
What Works Clearinghouse
"Destination Math" is a series of computer-based curricula designed to be used for at least 90 minutes a week. Featuring sequenced, prescriptive, step-by-step instruction, "Destination Math" is designed for the development of fluency in critical skills, math reasoning, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving skills. Intermediate Math (grades 4-6), Advanced Math (6-8), Pre-Algebra (6-8), and Algebra (9-12) are available for middle school students. The What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) identified 11 studies of Destination Math that were published or released between 1983 and 2008: Six studies are our of the scope of the review because they have an ineligible study design that does not meet WWC evidence standards; four studies are our of the scope of the review, as defined by the Middle School Math protocol, for reasons other than study design; and one study is within the scope of the review and has an eligible design, but does not meet WWC evidence standards. The lack of studies meeting WWC evidence standards means that, at this time, the WWC is unable to draw any conclusions based on research about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of "Destination Math." (Contains 2 footnotes.)
