This technical brief shares results and lessons learned from World Education’s experience developing and piloting an early grade mathematics intervention and assessment in remote disadvantaged districts in West Nepal. Mathematics has been a neglected challenge in the education sector in Nepal, and that neglect shows in children’s poor learning outcomes. Yet, while much work remains to be done to ensure that all Nepali children have a chance to learn core mathematical concepts, the project has developed a strong foundation upon which future work can build. The lessons learned and recommendations stemming from this project should be of interest to policy-makers, program designers, and practitioners alike.
