Abstract

Participation in society is increasingly dependent on educational achievement. Accordingly, society as a whole is committing more resources to education to prevent the adverse outcome of students moving through the school system only to emerge without the knowledge and skills that they might be expected to attain. In this paper, we explore the application of two models developed to prevent adverse outcomes in industrial and medical settings to the issues involved in providing an optimal mathematics education for all children.
