The Broad Foundation (2012) reported that nearly two-thirds of eighth grade students in the United States scored below proficientin math (NAEP, 2011). Educators are looking to new strategies and approachesto help improve math performance. This study looked at a specialized onlinedelivery program that provided individualized support and mentoring withpromising results. Actual findings were reported in terms of t-test scores amongthe seventh and eighth grade student participants in a suburban school district and survey questions to solicit student self-efficacy and satisfaction with thenew learning online learning experience. Findings were highly favorable inin both the quantitative and qualitative methods implemented.
