- Standards-Based School Mathematics Curricula: What Are They? What Do Students Learn?, a collection of research evaluating the new mathematics curricula, edited by Sharon L. Senk and Denisse R. Thompson, was published this year by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates Inc.
- The Joint Impact of a Standards-Based Curriculum on High School Algebra Achievement and Mathematics Course-Taking," a doctoral dissertation by Steven L. Kramer, is available from the Greater Philadelphia Secondary Mathematics Project.
- "The Tri-State Achievement Study," is available from the Alternatives for Rebuilding Curricula, a center financed by the National Science Foundation.
- Participants in the math-curriculum debate also operate Web sites that are clearinghouses for research and opinion. Www.mathematicallysane.com supports the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' standards, while www.mathematicallycorrect.com opposes them and advocates curricula that emphasize basic skills.
