Mathematics Curriculum Study


The Mathematics Curriculum Study explores the relationship between course-taking and achievement by investigating the content and challenge of two core high school mathematics courses—algebra I and geometry. Conducted in conjunction with the 2005 NAEP HSTS, the study uses textbooks as an indirect measure of what was taught in classrooms.
