The paper that follows is a small part of a research project in Mathematics undertaken at Stillwater, Minnesota High School. Stillwater High School is (and has been for about eight years) undergoing some dramatic curriculum and instructional method changes as well as some human relations experiences for its staff that have been funded in part by Federal grant. One of the conditions of receiving a grant is that some evaluative measures be taken. This is one of the motivating factors for this paper. As school systems, through population growth and consolidation, grow larger and larger, ways must be devised to personalize methods of instruction. Two such methods are homogeneous group and team-teaching.
