Increasing mathematical skills in American students has been a top priority. To increase these skills, an effective and easy to implement intervention is sought. Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) is frequently used as an intervention with promising results. MobyMax, a CAI application was used in this study. This study used two groups and a pretest/posttest to compare students’ achievement scores. The control group (n=28) received traditional Direct Instruction (DI) and the treatment group (n=29) received CAI through MobyMax. Independent sample t-tests were completed to determine the difference in student achievement scores. The results suggest the use of MobyMax increased student achievement compared to those who received traditional DI. Future research could examine the use of MobyMax with other populations.
