Math Trailblazers
Elementary School Mathematics

As of July 2007 no studies of Math Trailblazers 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 Math Trailblazers to improve outcomes in this area.
The Math Trailblazers curriculum for grades K-5 emphasizes active participation in developing problem-solving strategies which are applicable to real-world contexts. Through a balance of class work, small group learning, and individual instruction, students participate in longer (3-5 days) activities as well as shorter problem-solving tasks which integrate science, math, and language arts into hourly lessons. The curriculum provides different ways of looking at math problems to suit diverse learning styles, and incorporates textbooks, transparencies, manipulatives, and computer technology into each unit. The curriculum is designed to meet National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards.
