Abstract

From Here to There: Elementary (FH2T-E), an interactive perceptual-learning (PL) mathematics intervention, was evaluated for effects on algebraic readiness in first and second-grade students (N = 242). In total, three studies were conducted: feasibility of intervention, intervention compared to control, and an investigation of potential learning mechanisms. Results showed feasibility success and student engagement, as well as significant learning improvement from pre to post comparison in relation to a traditional teaching control. Interaction analyses show that initial pretest performance (high/low) and gender of the student are not indicators of posttest improvement.
