Product Description

By Christian Hirsch

Prepared in conjunction with the Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum and with support from the National Science Foundation, Perspectives on the Design and Development of School Mathematics Curricula offers multiple perspectives on the design and development of Standards-based curricula by fifteen comprehensive curriculum development projects.

The book represents more than fifteen years of work on the part of teams of mathematics curriculum developers in designing, developing, testing, and revising innovative curriculum materials for grades K–12. The curricula that evolved out of these projects represent an approach to mathematics teaching and learning that is qualitatively different from conventional practice in content, priorities, organization, and approaches. The insight in this volume provides invaluable guidance to current and future curriculum developers and curriculum users.
