On March 13, 2008, the National Mathematics Advisory Panel presented its Final Report to the President of the United States and the Secretary of Education. Copies of these ground-breaking reports, rich with information for parents, teachers, policy makers, the research community, and others, are provided here.
I am downloading the reports, but I haven’t had time to read them yet. The panel included Dr. Hung-Hsi Wu and Dr. Liping Ma, however, so I have good hope that the report will emphasize that we must teach a solid, conceptual understanding of mathematics while at the same time making sure our students achieve mastery of basic arithmetic and algebra skills.
