Highlights of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel’s Report

To compete in the 21st century global economy, knowledge of and proficiency in mathematics is critical. Today's high school graduates need to have solid mathematics skills—whether they are headed for college or the workforce. To help ensure our nation’s future competitiveness and economic viability, President George W. Bush created the National Mathematics Advisory Panel (National Math Panel) in April 2006.  The Panel was charged with reviewing the best available scientific evidence and making recommendations to improve mathematics education with a focus on algebra readiness and algebra success. 

This video offers an overview of the National Math Panel’s final report, issued in March 2008. The report contains 45 findings and recommendations on numerous topics including curriculum content, learning processes, instructional practices and materials, teachers, assessments and future research priorities.
