Alternatives for Rebuilding Curricula
The ARC Center promotes the wide-scale and effective implementation of standards-based mathematics curricula. The Center consults with school and districts and provides information and resources to support teacher enhancement, leadership development, and public awareness of mathematics.
About the ARC Center
The ARC Center is a collaboration between the Consortium for Mathematics and Its Applications (COMAP) and the three National Science Foundation supported elementary mathematics curriculum projects:
• Investigations in Number, Data, and Space (TERC)
• Everyday Mathematics (University of Chicago School Mathematics Project)
• Math Trailblazers (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Our goal is to promote the wide-scale and effective implementation of reform elementary mathematics curricula. We consult with schools and districts and provide resources and information that support
• Teacher enhancement and leadership development
• Public awareness of mathematics reform and new curricula
The three curricula listed above reflect the curriculum and evaluation standards for school mathematics developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). A satellite implementation center for each curriculum provides specific information and assistance to interested school districts and professionals.
There are numerous examples of successful interdisciplinary integration.
