Canada: A standardized test from the Education Quality and Assessment Office (EQAO) in 2015-2016 revealed that half of Ontario grade 6 students failed to meet the provincial standards in math. The report also established that student performance in Ontario has been steadily declining since the 2009-2010 school year after the advent of ‘Discovery Math’ curriculum.
U.S.A: The picture on the south side of the border (i.e. USA) appears to be bleaker. More than half a million 15-year-olds around the world took the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA for 72 OECD countries in 2015. The US ranking fell from 28th to 35th in math when looking at a comparable sample of countries that participated in the PISA exam in both 2012 (the last time the test was administered) and 2015. A more important finding was that the US performed poorer than the math average in the OECD.
A fantastic program whose commitment to the betterment of their students is undeniable. My grade 3 kid knows grade 6 math, and my grade 7 child placed 1st at ISNA with a 99% average! As a parent, I could not be more satisfied with the work Math Project does, and would recommend this program to anyone
