Summary:
A recent National Education Summit proposal stated that by the year 2000, all US students should leave high school with mastery over "challenging subject matter, including English, mathematics, science, history, and geography" and that they should rank first in the world in mathematics and science education. /// "The Challenge in Mathematics and Science Education: Psychology's Response" discusses, within the perspective of contemporary psychology, the underlying scientific principles and the mechanisms needed to improve the American educational system to produce these desired results. The book also addresses the variables of ethnicity and gender as they are related to academic performance in mathematics and science education. /// The contributing authors of [this book] draw on concepts from social, cognitive, educational, and clinical psychology to make valuable contributions to current theories on effective curriculum development and instructional methods.
