Transcript of Connecting Math Concepts

Reflective Inquiry
Project Connecting
Concepts CMC Placement test
Students were given the A level and B level placement tests. Interim Assessment Mastery Test #1
The test included counting objects, identifying numbers, and rote counting Conclusion Students were unable to count to 12.
They are now counting up to
19 in the program.

Students are able to count on
from a given number under 20.

Students are counting two
groups of lines and finding the
sum of the groups. Post Assessment Mastery test two
The test included making lines, rote counting, counting on, and counting groups of lines References Al-Makahleh, A. (2011).

Pre-Assessment Will implementing a new math intervention called Connecting Math Concepts for three hours every week, increase counting strategies for 2nd grade students who are performing on a kindergarten math level? The Question What the Research Says CMC is a direct instruction math intervention.

Crawford and Snider (2000) compared the implementation of CMC to the use of a basal text. The results showed that students who participated in the CMC program scored 18 points higher on multiplication facts tests than students in the basal program.

A study done by Stockard (2010) said that math students participating in CMC increased their math scores by 134%. Ali Konstantas
