The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of traditional curriculum programs in a second grade classroom versus the use of integrating other supplemental resources, such as technology resources and teacher created activities, in addition to curriculum programs. The students, who were randomly selected, were split into two groups. During the study, they were given instruction focusing on estimating and rounding numbers. Prior to instruction, they were given a pre-assessment. Following the study, the students took a post-assessment. The results of the assessments were observed to determine the effectiveness of traditional curriculum, in comparison to supplementing other resources.
