Based on the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Standards, the Number Power lessons are designed to meet the needs of students with diverse backgrounds. Each unit fosters the development of several essential concepts and may include additional areas of mathematics such as measurement, geometry, and data analysis.
Research results show that students who experienced the Number Power program improved twice as much per year as comparison groups in four areas:
- Understanding of number and number operations
- Depth of mathematical understanding
- Clarity of communicating mathematical ideas and operations
- Flexibility in approaching mathematical problems
