ab: Describes three transitional mathematics courses designed to upgrade high
school math courses and lure more low-achieving students into
college-preparatory math courses: California’s Math A Program;
Rochester, New York’s Stretch Regents Program; and Buffalo, New
York’s University of Chicago School Math Project. Transcript data
from 4,800 students showed that students took more challenging, useful
math; learned more; and improved self-esteem. (ERIC)
