Project FOCUS has developed seven mathematics Instructional Modules, each of which focuses on a specific mathematical concept and related skills. The modules are: Integers and Computation with Integers; Fractions and Computation with Fractions; Decimals and Computation with Decimals; Ratio, Proportion and Percent; Graphs and Their Interpretation; Variables and Equations; and Problem Solving. For each of the modules, there is an Instructor's Guide that contains pretests and posttests, a reproduction of the student module with complete answers, and suggestions of ways to impplement the program. The FOCUS modules, developed by mathematics education faculty at Boston University (Massachusetts), are designed for college students in need of remediation in mathematics. This project report provides an overview of the project; a section tracing the project from problem definition to project conclusion with a discussion of administrative pitfalls; information on the background and origins of the project organized into phases with a focus on organization, policies, and funding; a full description of the project and its workshops; and an evaluation and project results.
