|Specifically, we intend to
advance the research base and leadership capacity supporting K-12 mathematics
curriculum design, analysis, implementation, and evaluation.
|We believe that curriculum
matters and that only by examining and characterizing the role and influence
of curriculum on both teaching and learning can we improve student learning
|There is also a pressing
need to help prepare the next generation of mathematics curriculum
developers, professional development leaders who know how to use curriculum
as a central focus of teacher study, and curriculum researchers who can help
generate knowledge for new development cycles.
