Mathematics Education Programs That Work: A Collection of Proven Exemplary Educational Programs and Practices in the National Diffusion Network.
Lee, Carolyn S., Comp.
The National Diffusion Network (NDN) was established in 1974 through the Office of Educational Research and Improvement upon the belief that there are few difficulties encountered by school systems that have not been solved successfully in some other location. The primary function of the NDN is to disseminate information about a wide array of exemplary educational programs through which a local school system may solve its own unique problems without the necessity for starting from scratch. The term "exemplary program" is conferred only after a project has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education's Joint Dissemination Review Panel, recently renamed the Program Effectiveness Panel. This catalog contains descriptions of the exemplary mathematics education programs in the NDN, which are available to school systems and other educational institutions for implementation in their classrooms. Part I of the catalog contains the descriptions of 13 funded programs for K-12 mathematics instruction. Part II contains the descriptions of five nonfunded programs, which offer training and technical assistance through cost/service agreements negotiated with potential adopters. Part III contains contact details for the 50 state facilitators who can provide further information concerning any particular program, instructional materials and services about specific content areas, or professional development based on needs assessment from the prospective adopter.
