6 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As momentum for change in U.S. education continues to grow, questions about the nature and goals of mathematics education take on increasing urgency. This report proposes a framework for reform of school mathematics mainly through reshaping of the mathematics curriculum. Chapters included are: (1) "a Rationale for Change," describing changing conditions; (2) "a Practical Philosophy," discussing the nature of mathematics and the goals of mathematics education; (3) "Redesign from a Technological Perspective," discussing the use of calculators and computers; (4) "Redesign from a Research Perspective," discussing ways mathematics instruction needs to change based on numerous study findings; and (5) "Framework for Change," suggesting six principles, goals, and enabling conditions for the mathematics curriculum of the future.

Measuring up : prototypes for mathematics assessment by Washington,Dc. Mathematical Sciences Education Board National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The call for educational reform has caused mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment to come under both professional and public scrutiny. The three elements contesting for leadership in assessment reform are the conventional testing agencies, reformers led by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (nctm), and political agencies calling for assessment of progress towards the nation's new standards in mathematics education. This book presents 13 prototypes that exemplify changes called for in the NCTM's "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics." The introduction provides background information into the development of the prototypes that includes: (1) the origin of the Mathematics Science Education Board's decision to create the prototypes; (2) the criteria utilized to select the prototypes; (3) warnings that the prototypes should be viewed as work in progress; (4) the audience for this book; (5) a description of the objectives of the prototypes; (6) three examples of surprises that occurred when the prototypes were field tested; (7) the format for each prototype; (8) the scoring rubrics for the prototypes called protorubrics; (9) a discussion of how the prototypes fit in with the "Standards"; and (10) ideas on future directions for assessment. The remainder of the document presents the 13 prototypes that can be used either for informal classroom-based assessment or more formal external assessment. The tasks are presented in several formats and give students opportunities to respond in various modes. Each prototype provides a suggested time allotment and student social organization; a description of the task; a rationale to the mathematics community for its inclusion in the booklet; the associated protorubric; and a reference. Two prototypes are also presented in Spanish. Contains 13 references, a list of state mathematics coalitions, and a list of members of the Mathematical Sciences Education Board. (Mdh)
A challenge of numbers : people in the mathematical sciences by Bernard L Madison( Book )

6 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mathematical sciences, based largely in academia, are crucial not only for the development of new knowledge but also as a needed resource in the education of our technological work force. As with other scientific professions, the challenge of meeting the growing need for workers in the face of shrinking supplies will require a program of national action, but the situation in the mathematical sciences is particularly severe. This report describes the circumstances and issues related to the human resources in the mathematical sciences, principally students and teachers at U.S. colleges and universities. It contains data from a large number of existing sources and provides a comprehensive set of data describing the demographic situation in the mathematical sciences. Chapters include: (1) "Introduction and Historical Perspective"; (2) "The U.S. Labor Force and Higher Education"; (3) "College and University Mathematical Sciences"; (4) "Majors in Mathematics and Statistics"; (5) "Mathematical Scientists in the Workplace"; and (6) "Issues and Implications." A list of 123 references, 45 figures, and 22 tables of data are appended. (Cw)

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally, vocational mathematics and precollege mathematics have been separate in schools. This book illuminates the interplay between technical and academic mathematics. This collection of essays by mathematicians, educators, and other experts is enhanced with illustrative tasks from workplace and everyday contexts that suggest ways to strengthen high school mathematics education. Chapters include: (1) "Mathematics as a Gateway to Student Success" (Dale Parnell); (2) "Market Launch" (Rol Fessenden); (3) "Integrating Vocational and Academic Education" (Thomas Bailey); (4) "The Importance of Workplace and Everyday Mathematics" (Jean E. Taylor); (5) "Working with Algebra" (Daniel Chazan and Sandra Callis Bethell); (6) "Science and Mathematics Education: Finding Common Ground" (Jane Butler Kahle); (7) "scans and Mathematics--Supporting the Transition from Schools to Careers" (Arnold Packer); (8) "Thinking about the sat" (William Linder-Scholer); (9) "Extended Response Tasks in International Contexts" (John Dossey); (10) "Fitting Tasks to Curriculum" (Zalman Usiskin); (11) "Mathematics as a Way of Thinking about Things" (Albert A. Cuoco); (12) "Preparing Students for Postsecondary Education" (Harvey B. Keynes); (13) "Pedagogical Implications for Problem-Centered Teaching" (Glenda T. Lappan); (14) "The Role of Complex Mathematical Tasks in Teacher Education" (Gilbert J. Cuevas); and (15) "Assessment Conversations as a Tool for Reform" (Paul G. LeMahieu and Marsha T. Horton).

Mathematical and scientific development in early childhood : a workshop summary by Alexandra S Beatty( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Research Council (nrc), through the Center for Education (cfe), wishes to build on the work in early childhood it has already done. In particular, the nrc wishes to focus on research on young children and their learning of mathematical and scientific ideas. The workshop that is the subject of this report, one in a series of workshops made possible through a grant to the cfe from the National Science Foundation, is the starting point for that effort. The center's mission is to promote evidence-based policy analysis that both responds to current needs and anticipates future ones. This one-day workshop was designed as an initial step in exploring the research in cognition and developmental psychology that sheds light on children's capacity to learn mathematical and scientific ideas. The workshop brought experts together to discuss research on the ways children's cognitive capacities can serve as building blocks in the development of mathematical and scientific understanding. The workshop also focused on curricular and resource materials for mathematics and science found in early childhood education settings as a means to examine particular research-based assumptions that influence classroom practice. The sole purpose of this report is to describe the discussions that took place at that workshop. However, issues for further investigation are explored in two afterwords
