Title: Why Isn't the Mathematics We Learned Good Enough for Today's Students?: The Imperative of Mathematic PDF
Url: https://education.ti.com/sites/US/downloads/pdf/mathpaper01.pdf
Publisher: Council of Chief State School Officers
Texas Instruments Incorporated
Description: In an effort to explore new ways of improving mathematics education in middle and high schools, the Council of Chief State School Officers and Texas Instruments formed a Technology Research and Development Advisory Committee (R&D Committee) in the spring of 2004. This R&D Committee, consisting of state deputy superintendents or commissioners, district superintendents, and CCSSO staff, met in April 2004 to examine ways in which business and education can work together to build models that will enhance mathematical literacy. The idea for a series of short briefing papers on the core components of mathematics education was born out of that first R&D Committee meeting. While the analysis and suggestions in this briefing paper are informed by the best collective thinking of that group of teachers, administrators, policy makers, product developers, and researchers, the primary authors of this paper are Circe Stumbo and Susan Follett Lusi. Jamie Poolos is the paper's editor.

These papers do not necessarily represent the positions of the Council of Chief State School Officers, Texas Instruments Incorporated reviewers of the draft papers, or members of the R&D Committee. Any errors, omissions, or misinterpretations present in this paper are the sole responsibility of the authors.
