A Conceptual Framework for High School Mathematics. Final Report.
Rissland, Edwina L.; Waisbrot, Sally
Presented is the final report of a one-year project on the structure of high school mathematics knowledge sponsored by the National Institute of Education (NIE). The main body contains conclusions on a conceptual framework for representing high school mathematics. Results are presented through discussion of three domains from the secondary school curriculum: conic sections, quadrilaterals, and area. The main purpose of the project was to develop a conceptual framework to make it easier for teachers to describe, lay out, and present mathematics in a way that captures their knowledge of it. In addition to the main body of this document, there are three appendices: (1) Frames for Conics; (2) The Structure of Knowledge in Complex Domains; and (3) Teaching Learning Systems. (MP)
