IN FALL 1997, A LOCAL PUBLIC MIDDLE school granted me permission to try a new curriculum with twenty-six sixth graders for nine weeks. I wanted to study children in ordinary classrooms using commonly available materials, like an overhead projector and worksheets. These students were randomly selected from 153 low achievers in mathematics on the basis of scores from the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS)—scores below the fortieth percentile—and recommendation by a classroom teacher.
