pdf Direct Instruction Mathematics Programs: An Overview and Research Summary Popular

This paper summarizes the research base behind Direct Instruction mathematics programs, including DISTAR Arithmetic, Corrective Mathematics, and Connecting Math Concepts. 12 studies that evaluate the effectiveness of DI math programs are reviewed. 11 out of the 12 reviewed show positive results for DI math programs.

pdf Effects of a High School-Based PeerDelivered Corrective Mathematics Program Popular

This study examined the effects of a peer-delivered Corrective Mathematics program on math ability of low-performers in a secondary general education classroom. The Calculation and Applied Problems subtests of the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Test were used to assess math ability following intervention. Both learners and tutors showed statistically significant increases in scores on the Applied Problems subtest; the learners showed significant increases in scores on the Calculation subtest.

pdf Teaching Basic Math Skills to Preschoolers Using Connecting Math Concepts Level K Popular

This study examined the effect of Connecting Math Concepts Level K on basic math skills of typically-developing preschoolers and preschoolers with developmental delays. Results indicate that children had improved performance from pretest to posttest; effect sizes on the Battelle Developmental Inventory (BDI) Cognitive Domain were generally educationally significant (d > 0.25) for both groups of students.
