Experience learning in a new way, build on old knowledge

Knowing Mathematics is a small-group mathematics intervention program for fourth- through sixth-graders who are two or more years below grade level. Combining best practices of East Asian and U.S. instruction, it is designed to vertically accelerate students to grade level.

Students are provided with a new way of learning mathematics, different from their previous experiences that may have been accompanied by failure and frustration. At the same time, the curriculum draws on the mathematical knowledge that students already have, although fragmentary and insufficient, to repair and re-organize it to build a sound foundation for future learning.
