The purpose of this study was to look at the relationship between group work and self-efficacy. The study was conducted in two 6th grade foundations of algebra classrooms with about 33 students in each. A new curriculum, called CPM or college preparatory mathematics, was used to design groups for this study. A mixed methods approach was used during the study that consisted of surveys and interviews. Students were then later grouped into two groups based on their survey answers, productive and enjoyment, and unproductive and non enjoyment. The question that was addressed during the study was what happens to students' self-efficacy when they work in one of the two groups.
