This study reports on an intervention, Prepare 2 Learn, designed taking into account research literature and components of other successful mathematics programs. The research targeted students approximately 6 months behind the expected mathematics level for their year. The intervention consisted of four key components: building prerequisite knowledge of mathematical language, concepts, and skills to prepare students for their classroom mathematics; increasing fluency with mental computation; encouraging a growth mindset; and developing metacognitive strategies. This combination of components sought to enable the students to reach expected level and become confident, responsible, independent mathematics learners.
