  • Research Committee: Trends and Issues in High School Mathematics: Research Insights and Needs

    NCTM Research Committee
    The recent publication of two important documents, Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making (NCTM, 2009) and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (National Governors Association Center for Best Practices & Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010), provides a timely opportunity to take stock of the various recommendations and policies aimed at improving the quality of students' high school mathematics education in the United States. In this article, we capitalize on  this opportunity to reflect on national trends in high school mathematics, to highlight current calls and efforts for improving high school mathematics and research on which these recommendations are based, and to suggest areas for which further research is needed.
