2018-2019 Research Opportunity

Our research team at Education Development Center, Inc. and Boston College is leading a new study that will examine the impact of Transition to Algebra on students' mathematics achievement and attitudes towards mathematics. The study, called Supporting Success in Algebra, addresses the urgent and persistent need for effective, evidence-based approaches to prepare all students for success in algebra.

Currently, we are looking for interested high schools to implement the TTA materials in the 2018-19 school year in yearlong algebra support courses taken concurrently with Algebra 1. High schools that participate in the study will receive:

  • Free Transition to Algebra materials from the publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt;
  • Free professional development provided by program developers at EDC; and
  • Teacher stipends for their completion of professional development and research activities.

To learn more and consider participating, contact Deborah Spencer, Principal Investigator, at 617-618-2558 or dspencer@edc.org.
