Title:  Math Expressions
Description: This WWC intervention report summarizes the research on Math Expressions, a core curriculum for elementary school students that aims to build students' conceptual understanding of mathematics and to develop fluency in mathematical problem solving and computation. The curriculum encourages student learning of mathematics through real-world situations, visual supports such as drawings and manipulatives, multiple approaches to solving problems, and opportunities for students to explain their mathematical thinking. Based on the research, the WWC found that Math Expressions has no discernible effects on general mathematics achievement for students in grades 1 and 2, relative to other math curricula used in study schools.
