Blurb/Shorttext:
Proficiency in algebra is critical to success in today’s competitive world. Algebra is the foundation for any form of higher mathematics in high school and beyond. Research indicates that completion of Algebra II correlates significantly with success in college and earnings from employment; students who complete Algebra II are more than twice as likely to graduate from college as students less prepared in mathematics (NMAP, 2008). The results on the standardized tests in California are startling: our eighth graders ranked 44th in the nation in 2007 in mathematics and nationwide there are no signs of growth in mathematical proficiency. The National Mathematics Advisory Panel, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, and other organizations are actively engaged in an effort to streamline the K-8 mathematics curriculum and find the best research based practices which will guarantee success in Algebra for all students. Many "quick fixes" have been proposed, one of which is discussed in the present study.
