Internet navigation, spreadsheet use, financial decisions, and cell phone programming all require the abilities to reason about calculations, develop algorithms, use symbols, and describe relations

For many students, the utility of mathematics lies in a style of work—the habits of mind that allow one to look at the world through a mathematical lens.

Using strategies from a new, NSF-funded curriculum, CME Project, this presentation shows techniques to help students develop and write formal proofs in algebra and geometry, with special a

As CME Project (published by Pearson Education) was developed, the development team found many cases where technology, especially a Computer Algebra System (CAS), enhanced the desire to de

Ninth International Conference "Mathematics Education in a Global Community"

This talk describes CME Project, an NSF-funded four-year comprehensive high school mathematics curriculum being developed by Education Development Center, Inc.

Critical Issues in Education Workshop: Teaching and Learning Algebra, MSRI Workshop

The development of CME Project began in 1992 with a grant from NSF to develop a geometry course, but the basic principles upon which the program rests evolved over nearly four decades.

This presentation looks at effective approaches to topics across the high school curriculum, including algebra word problems, geometric proofs, mathematical induction, and optimization.

Algebra is more than just a high school course sequence. Certain habits of mind lead to algebraic proficiency across the grades, and Computer Algebra Systems can help develop these habits.
