Paper 1: Literature Review
Choose a mathematical concept that you believe is difficult to teach at the middle or high school level.
Examine at least three texts that explore that concept at lower and higher levels.
Write a report describing your readings and explaining how the current mathematics curriculum supports (or doesnŐt support)
the development of this concept. Use other references to support your argument.
Give a short class presentation to summarize the readings and your conclusions.

Paper 2: Project
Design a series of lessons or a project that illustrates one of the concepts presented in this course at the middle or high school level.
In particular, show how the core concepts from these advanced mathematical ideas can be used as part of the middle school
and high school curriculum.
Use other references to support your argument. Give a short class presentation on your lessons or project.
You may choose to make this paper an extension of your first paper, or choose an entirely different topic.
