The study examined whether lower-achieving students will benefit from the use of computers in their classrooms. The participants were freshman high school students, and 95% of them were either African-American or Hispanic. The researcher selected six Algebra I classes; three of them were placed in the experimental group and another three classes in the control group. There were 127 students with 65 students in the experimental and 62 of them in the control group. The study found that the lower-performing students in mathematics who used computer technology in their classrooms significantly outperformed other students who had no access to this technology. This study showed there were no significant differences in learning mathematics between learners in the two groups. On an attitude survey, this study discovered that students with computer-assisted technology developed better attitudes toward mathematics.
