This Interactive Qualifying Project is an experiment project designed to analyze the relationship between mathematical test performance and the amount of mathematical practices a student undertakes. The proposed hypothesis is that there exists a positive proportional relationship between students' mathematical performance and the amount of practices the students complete. By analyzing the results obtained from the experiment, we found a reliable difference of the performance gains between the control and experiment (mastery) groups. Therefore, we conclude that there does indeed exists a positive proportional relationship between students' mathematical performance and the amount of practices they complete. In other words, mastery learning leads to better learning.
