[Extract] In this project we intended that those who had been placed in groups of low-attaining students would make deep progress in mathematics. Deep progress means that students learn more mathematics, get better at learning mathematics and feel better about themselves as mathematics students. Sometimes the last of these follows from the other two; sometimes students have to feel better before they learn more; sometimes students have to redevelop good learning habits before they can move on and learn more. Ideally, students will make progress in all three aspects.
