Social sciences, science, and mathematics curriculum improvement projects supported by the National Science Foundation are described in this publication. Description of projects is limited to those having direct relevance to pre-college education and to those supported by the Materials and Instruction Development Section of the Division of Pre-College Education in Science. At the end of this booklet is a section describing some important conferences and research studies of general interest for the development of materials and instructional strategies, or for evaluation of specific projects. The present publication is organized first according to grade level--elementary, intermediate, and secondary--and then within educational level by broad discipline groupings--mathematics, science, and social sciences. The project descriptions reflect the state of activities as of January 31, 1974. Entries include name and address of the project director and of the current contact for the program, a brief summary of objectives and accomplishments, a discussion of activities, and a list of available materials and addresses for obtaining them.
