29 p. 

The Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) mathematics project at Hall Elementary School in Minneapolis completed its fourth year of operation in June 1973. The program is organized on a continuum of 415 math skills grouped into eight levels according to increased difficulty. Students progress through the continuum at their own rate as they master math skills. Children in grades 2-6 participated in the 1972-1973 project. Achievement scores on the Modern Math Supplement to the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills have improved each year of the IPI project. Contrary to children in many disadvantaged areas, Hall students do not compare less favorably with publisher norms as they become older; the IPI students hold near the percentile rank they had as third graders as they progress through school. Hall students have expressed more positive attitudes toward math than those in comparison schools. Hall teachers have supported the IPI project, emphasizing the individualized approach and the students' positive attitudes. IPI was not to be continued in the 1973-74 school year. (Author/BJG)
