Summary

This paper reports an attempt to teach high school algebra quickly to students in grades 4-7. Twelve boys and 12 girls were taught by professors of the same sex for a total of 37 hours. Instruction took place in the students' regular schools. Twenty-one of the students finished the course, and 18 of these placed between the 49 and 99.4 percentile on a standardized algebra test. Five of the experimental students scored higher on this test than any eight-grade students in their school. Plans for a second-year algebra course are discussed. (Author/SD)
