In September 1998, the Math Science Education Board held a Convocation on Middle Grades Mathematics that was co-sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the National Middle School Association, and the American Educational Research Association. The Convocation was structured to present the teaching of middle school mathematics from two points of view: teaching mathematics with a focus on the subject matter content or teaching mathematics with a focus on the whole child and whole curriculum. This book discusses the challenges before the nation's mathematical sciences community to concentrate its energy on the improvement of middle grades mathematics education and to begin an ongoing national dialogue on middle grades mathematics education.Teaching to Meet the Needs of Middle Grades Learners and to Maintain High Expectations: Proceedings of a National Convocation and Action Conferences Center for Science, Mathematics, and ... program in grade eight, about half of the Traverse City students go into UCSMP Algebra, and about half go into UCSMP Geometry.
