But How Will We Actually Get These Kids to Algebra II?
Judy B. Codding Pasadena HIgh School
85% of students took 2 year minimal math course, only
20% graduated with credit in algebra or geometry.
They used CMSP Comprehensive Math and Science Program
supported by Natioal Science Foundation, uses 2 class
periods per day, they had to fire vocational teachers.
Only A or B grades given, or fail. You must master (at
least B) or attend summer school)
By spring of 1993 math scores up from 26 in mid school
to 54 at high school, then 57 (big deal)
