The Dwight D. Eisenhower Mathematics and Science Education Program is authorized under the Education for Economic Security Act as amended by the Hawkins-Stafford Elementary and Secondary Improvement Amendments of 1988. The purpose of the program is to support innovative projects of national significance directed at improving the quality of teaching and instruction in mathematics and science in the schools and to increase the access of all students to that instruction. This collection of abstracts describes in broad terms the scope and objectives of the 1990 FIRST Program Grants in 27 states, the District of Columbia, and American Samoa, in mathematics and science, and includes names and addresses of recipients. The abstracts are divided into five catgories including: elementary and secondary mathematics; elementary and secondary science; and other mathematics and science education projects. Included in this publication are a list of contacts for the program, a summary of the characteristics of the projects funded by the program, a list of program types, a brief list of awardees by location, and abstracts for the 63 funded projects. Abstracts provide a brief description of the project; names, phone numbers, and addresses of contact persons; award amount; and project duration. (CW)
