Adventures of Jasper Woodbury Series
Elementary School Mathematics

As of July 2007 no studies of Adventures of Jasper Woodbury Series were found that fell within the scope of the Elementary School Mathematics review protocol and met WWC design standards. Therefore, the WWC is unable to draw any research based conclusions about the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of Adventures of Jasper Woodbury Series to improve outcomes in this area.
The Adventures of Jasper Woodbury Series, a curriculum-based program available for grades 5 and up, consists of 12 videodisc-based adventures that are formulated to meet the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards. Each adventure ends in a challenge designed to bridge the gap between natural and school learning environments through problem solving, reasoning, communicating, and making connections to other areas such as science, social studies, literature, and history. The episodes include all the data needed to solve the challenge, and may be re-visited by students as necessary.
