Abstract: Educational researchers at New Mexico State University found patterns of common mathematical errors and conceptual misunderstandings by students from diverse communities and schools when they analyzed 24,000 student test results on an annual state standardized test. This article describes how knowledge of conceptual gaps in mathematics in Grades 3-8, connected with designs for digital learning, was used as the basis for the development and testing of successful digitally-based mathematics learning materials.
