This Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) focused on the impact of the re-mastery of prior knowledge skills on the retention of new mathematical content, using the non-profit, computerbased system of ASSISTments. The study took place over the 2011 – 2012 Academic year, encompassing four middle school classrooms and four books from the Connected Mathematics Project (CMP) curriculum. Two weeks prior to the start of a new mathematics unit, the experimental group was given an opportunity to practice skill building sets identified as prior knowledge skills which were needed for success in the new unit. Data from the study concluded that re-mastery of prior knowledge skills may be beneficial in the mastery of new content.
