The Guidebook of Federal Resources for K-12 Mathematics and Science 1998-99.
Thorson, Annette, Ed.
This guidebook, a comprehensive national directory of federal offices, programs, and facilities supporting K-12 education in mathematics and science, was designed to inform educators and the general public about federally-supported resources in these subjects and to increase access to them. This book contains information on federal offices and programs at the national and regional levels and lists state-by-state contacts for many of these resources. Sixteen federal agencies collaborated with the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC) to produce this publication. Section 1 contains general information about the 16 agencies and highlights their involvement in mathematics and science education, acquaints the reader with agency-specific background information, and lists its administrative offices for mathematics and science education. Section 2 features nationwide agency-sponsored mathematics and science programs for elementary and secondary education by region. Each program entry includes the program name, a brief program description, and contact information. Section 3 lists by state and territory those agency resources available at the local level. Information contained in this guidebook is also available in electronic format as part of ENC's effort to provide online information and resources. (ASK)
