DOE/RAND Study Confirms Algebra Learning Doubles ~ Algebra Effectiveness | STEM Connections |

"With the U.S. ranking 25th in international math scores, a panel of scientists and education experts on Capitol Hill recently hailed research so unique that only two percent of all U.S. Department of Education funded studies are similar. The study discovered that a Carnegie Learning curriculum doubled the amount of algebra learning typically experienced by high school math students. Moreover the results are extraordinary because experts believe school districts across the country could realistically replicate the success in their classrooms. Watch highlights of the panel here."
