Accelerating cognitive growth: The Edison School math project

Vreeland, M.; Vail, J.; Bradley, L.; Cipriano, K.; Green, C.; Henshaw, P.; Hurth, E.
Abstract:
This study compared third and fifth grade classrooms at Edison School in Kalamazoo, Michigan that implemented the Direct Instruction program, Connecting Math Concepts, with classrooms that implemented a traditional math program, Addison-Wesley. Computation and applied problem solving skills were measured. Results indicate that Connecting Math Concepts increased students’ math ability; students achieved average to above average rates of progress in math, and typically matched or exceeded the rates of more advantaged, higher SES comparison classrooms.
