Mathematics Learning and Retention through a Summer Program for Underserved Elementary Children
Tuft, Elaine; Bachler, Michael
Educational Research: Theory and Practice, v28 n2 p25-30 2016
Many are concerned with potential learning loss that can occur during the summer break. This is of particular concern for underserved populations of elementary school children. This paper describes a summer school program that was designed to serve one of these populations as well as its effects on the retention and learning of mathematics knowledge. The researchers found that, on average, students in each grade level were able to maintain or improve their performance on mathematics tests that assessed knowledge related to the number and operation concepts that were designated by the state core standards for their corresponding grades.
