“At the end of the 3rd reporting period, (March 2005), the highest score 86%(A) was achieved by an Aboriginal student, 5 students earned the letter grade B, 1 student earned C+, 5 students earned C, 2 students earned C, and 3 students earned I.
In my 16 years of teaching, I cannot recall any other “essentials” classes (Low level math course for students designated with disabilities) that I’ve taught to have had such a phenomenal marks distribution.”
The result? Out of the 16 students in the pilot Grade 8 class, 13 passed the final exam. When the same exam was given to the school's enriched math class, those advanced students scored only five per cent higher on average than her pilot class of students in the lower level math course.

“For me personally, the math workshops have invigorated my teaching; after each workshop I return to my classes feeling more knowledgeable about math concepts and teaching math. I take into my classes both new teaching methods and increased optimism about my students’ ability to achieve. As an indicator of this, about 40% of my class achieved 100% in their Unit 1 Math Exam  it was so great to see students asking for a copy of their exam to take home to show their parents”
