Teaching Mathematics, Science,
and Technology in General Education and Special Education,
This page was created for a class that I am teaching for Touro
College in Westchester, NY in the spring of 2007. The catalog description reads:
Mathematics, science, and technology instruction and remediation; curriculum development in developmental context; methods of teaching and remediation in mathematics, science, and technology; application of mathematical concepts and skills in the study of science; application of mathematical and scientific concepts and skills in real life settings; critical approach to the benefits and hazards of technology.

Trends in Mathematics:
The NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) long-term trend assessment in mathematics documents trends in student performance from 1973 through 2004. Performance results are reported in three ways: as average scale scores, as percentile scores, and as percentages of students reaching predetermined performance levels. Use the links below to view key findings, and use the arrow at the upper right of the results pages to move sequentially through mathematics and reading findings.
