"Supporting Mathematics Achievement for Under-Prepared Students Using the Algebra Project Model for Experiential Learning"

Professor Robin Todd Wilson

California State Polytechnic University, Pomona


Abstract:

Over the past three decades the Algebra Project has worked to demonstrate that with the right support students from the lowest quartile of academic achievement, economic, and social status can be successful at achieving a level of mathematics education equivalent to that of their college bound peers.  Recently, the Algebra Project has been working to develop four years of curricular materials designed to accelerate the learning of the lowest performing high school students in the United States.
