Distributed practice is a daily routine where students are exposed to a math problem, asked to solve it, and then explain how they solved it. The idea of short intervals of instruction over a period of time can have remarkable results. This instructional strategy has been cited in numerous research studies, an indication that it may be successful in helping students better understand how they can solve mathematical problems.
This study will try to determine the growth of Jewett Elementary's first grade students as they were exposed to distributed practice over a period of time from first to second quarter during the 2004-2005 school year. The areas that are monitored are addition and thinking skills. The research question to be answered is, did distributed practice increase growth in our first grade students as measured by district and classroom assessments?
