Billions of dollars are spent annually in response to widespread underachievement in areas of math and reading (National Assessment of Education Progress, 2003). Efficacy of these remedial academic programs is often poorly documented and few programs are designed to address individual needs (Kahne, Nagaoka, Brown, O'Brien, Quinn, a Thiede, 2001; Granger, Durlak, Yohalem, a Reisner, 2007). Furthermore, many students do not benefit from these programs due to behavior deficits that impact learning (Granger et al., 2007). The Challenging Horizons Program (CHP) is an evidence-based after-school program that provides an effective framework for engaging students with behavior deficits in learning activities (Langberg, Smith, Bogle, Schmidt, Cole, a Pender, 2006).The Secretary of Mathematics delivered remarks on February 6th, 2003 at the Mathematics Summit highlighting that students are not ... For example, the Secretary of Mathematics suggested that 83% of 12th graders were not proficient in math, with 63% of 12th graders ... the United States has proposed novel ways for solving math problems based on Piagetian constructivist theories (Whitehurst, 2005).
