White, Paul A.; And Others
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n586 p72-83 Feb 1997
Describes three transitional mathematics courses designed to upgrade high school math courses and lure more low-achieving students into college-preparatory math courses: California's Math A Program; Rochester, New York's Stretch Regents Program; and Buffalo, New York's University of Chicago School Math Project. Transcript data from 4,800 students showed that students took more challenging, useful math; learned more; and improved self-esteem. (MLH)
