Dr. Diane Bryant, University of Texas- Austin and Dr. Barbara Dougherty of CRDG, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
Mathematics standards in middle grades have a significant focus on algebraic concepts and skills, building a foundation for future success in academic and career pathways. Inadequate preparation in earlier grades may hinder some students in achieving the expected level of understanding, potentially increasing the achievement gap that exists.
This presentation focuses on Algebra-readiness Intervention Modules funded by US Dept. of Education for development and an efficacy study. Drs. Bryant and Dougherty will present the research design; a description of the module contents including the mathematical approach, instructional strategies, and assessments; and implications for middle school intervention programs.
