Mathematics for the 21st Century: CCR publishes its recommendations in three concise papers

Thanks to generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Fondation Henri Moser, the Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR) has worked during the past two years to synthesize research on Mathematics education around the world as related to the central question: “What should students learn for the 21st century?”

The recommendations are now published as three succinct papers that describe the goals for redesigning standards for Mathematics for the 21st Century:

  1. Branches, Subjects, & Topics
  2. Methods & Tools
  3. Concepts & Processes

and the supporting paper: Does mathematics education enhance higher-order thinking skills?

The recommendations have incorporated copious input and feedback from CCR member jurisdictions, many invited experts at its Stockholm conference, and an experts’ colloquium in East Hampton, NY.

As always, CCR remains open to constructive suggestions and creative ideas. Please Contact Us with any feedback.
