Mathematics Curriculum Development as a Scientific Endeavor.
Battista, Michael T.; Clements, Douglas H.
This chapter discusses the way that mathematics curricula are developed in the United States. It suggests that curriculum development in mathematics education makes little progress because it fails to adhere to scientific methodology. Weaknesses in the current development process, how such development can become scientific, how curriculum development should be related to research on learning and teaching, and some possible criticism of taking a scientific approach are discussed.
