Mathematical Proficiency for All Students: Toward a Strategic Research and Development Program in Mathematics Education.
Rand Corp., Santa Monica, CA. Science and Technology Policy Inst.
This report is the second in a series of RAND reports on the topic of education research and development proposing a long-term, strategic program of research and development in mathematics education. The RAND Mathematics Study Panel's recommendations for the substance and conduct of the program are presented in this report. The program is designed to develop knowledge, materials, and programs to help educators achieve two goals: (1) to raise the level of mathematical proficiency; and (2) to eliminate differences in levels of mathematics proficiency among students in different social, cultural, and ethnic groups. Four chapters of this report are presented with the following focus areas: (1) developing teachers' mathematical knowledge for teaching; (2) teaching and learning mathematical practice; (3) teaching and learning algebra in kindergarten through 12th grade; and (4) building the infrastructure for a coordinate program of research and development.
