The increased competition in technical advancement has made the need for high quality scientists, engineers, and technicians stand out in bold relief. Better instruction in mathematics in our public schools can make a contribution to the quality of our scientific personnel. If research findings are implemented in the classroom they likewise can make a contribution. The purpose of this study is to help implement research findings by making available the results of research in the teaching of mathematics that have been reported to the Office of Education during the calendar years 1957 and 1958. It is hoped that the present study will be helpful both to researchers and classroom teachers in their efforts to improve the teaching of mathematics. Appendix includes: Summary of Research Studies.
