Science and Mathematics Education in the United States: Eight Innovations: Proceedings of the OECD International Conference on Science, Mathematics and Technology Education (Paris, France, November 5-7, 1991).
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This volume is the first in a series emanating from the Center for Educational Research and Innovation's project on science, mathematics, and technology education in countries of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It contains eight case studies from the United States presented to an international conference. Four papers on innovations in science education are: "California's Systemic Improvement of Science Education" (Edward Britton); "Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom)" (Martha Lynch and Edward Britton); "Kids Network" (Edward Britton); and "Project 2061" (Martha Lynch and Edward Britton). The four papers on innovations in mathematics education are: "State of California: Restructuring of Mathematics Education" (Norman L. Webb); "The Role of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in the Current Reform Movement in School Mathematics in the United States of America" (Thomas A. Romberg and Norman L. Webb); "The Urban Mathematics Collaborative Project: C2ME as a Case Study on Teacher Professionalism" (Thomas A. Romberg and Norman L. Webb); and "Mathematics Accessible Through Technology: The Voyage of the Mimi as an Interdisciplinary and Technologically-Based Program" (Norman L. Webb). An appendix after the NCTM paper contains an overview of the NCTM Curriculum and Evaluation Standards. (MKR)
