|North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL)|
|An interactive curriculum designed to help inner-city and rural students better understand mathematical concepts. Developed by Bob Moses, a mathematician and civil rights leader, the curriculum calls for students to follow a five-step process in which they use their physical surroundings as tangible references for mathematical ideas. Jackie Rivers, Algebra Project Coordinator, and Claude Snead, Algebra Project Intern, talk about the benefits of the Algebra Project (476k). Excerpted from NCREL's videoseries, Schools That Work: The Research Advantage, videoconference 2, Children as Problem Solvers (NCREL, 1991).|
