The objective of this research project is to analyze the effects of using focusing techniques located in the area of mathematics in a group of sixth graders with low academic performance to enhance the strategic use of mathematics. This is a mixed quantitative and qualitative research because it uses a design pretest - posttest but the design of the activities followed a training approach. The sample consisted of 12 children aged between 11 and 12 years of age. The results show that students require custom fitting, teaching aids and teaching materials according to their way of learning to develop their mathematical potential.

Keywords : Located approach; Mathematics; Attitude towards Mathematics.
