Open Access Graduate Research Paper
In recent years, mathematics teaching has become a profession in crisis. The Second International Mathematics Study shows achievement scores in the United States well below the international median in mathematics. Particularly disturbing information from the eighth grade study is the apparent lack of learning that goes on in the eighth grade. Students scored 38 percent on the pretest and 46 percent on the posttest at the end of the academic year (Willoughby, 1987). Since children usually forget a fair amount over the summer, they must have known more than 38 percent at the end of seventh grade.
