Destination Math
Middle School Math

As of March 2009 no studies of Destination Math were found that fell within the scope of the Middle School Math review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Destination Math to improve outcomes in this area.
Destination MATH is a computer curriculum that is designed to demonstrate how mathematical issues arise in real-life situations. Courses IV and V are designed for students in grades 6–8. Each course contains a scope and sequence section that shows the skills to be learned in that section of the course. Course IV, Basic Mathematics, focuses on arithmetic, numbers, and operations included in the middle school math curriculum. The course also investigates properties of fractions, decimals, percents, and integers as well as the rules that govern their operations. Course V, Pre-Algebra, focuses on ratios, proportions, and irrational numbers. Additionally, the course includes the fundamental skills and concepts found in algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability. The program includes a Learning Management and Assessment System designed to help teachers relate assignments with district objectives. Teachers can monitor their students through online reports and can create students tests designed for various levels of difficulty. The course can be obtained by subscribing online or by purchasing a CD.
