Title: University of Chicago School Mathematics Project 6-12 Curriculum.
Description: The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project (UCSMP) 6-12 Curriculum is a series of year-long courses-(1) Transition Mathematics; (2) Algebra; (3) Geometry; (4) Advanced Algebra; (5) Functions, Statistics, and Trigonometry; and (6) Precalculus and Discrete Mathematics-emphasizing problem solving, real-world applications, and the use of technology. The program is designed to allow schools to offer the appropriate math courses to students, independent of grade level. The WWC reviewed 20 studies that investigate the effects of UCSMP on high school students. Two studies meet WWC evidence standards with reservations and included 251 high school students in five schools in five districts. Based on these two studies, the WWC considers UCSMP to have potentially positive effects on mathematics achievement for high school students.
