Foundations for Success

File this under, “Stuff I meant to post last week and didn’t.”

The National Mathematics Advisory Panel released its final report last week, titled Foundations for Success. You can find the report and sub-reports in a variety of file formats at the NMAP home page.

The report is heavily grounded in “high-quality” research and includes six key elements that I would summarize as follows:

  1. Curriculum Focal Points;
  2. How students learn;
  3. Teacher content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge;
  4. Quality first instruction;
  5. Quality, focused assessment; and
  6. Education research.

Remember, these are my summaries, not theirs. I would suggest looking at the report if you’re at all interested in what the group had to say, as they are much more verbose than I.
