      own history of mathematics course to me; as one might expect, it was detailed, scholarly, and encouraged students to do research of their own, particularly on the Greeks. I told him that I gave what I hoped was a critical account of the whole history of mathematics in a series of lectures, trying to go beyond what they would find in a textbook.

Borman. Discusses problems (and possible solutions) related to: changing enrollments and effects on teacher demand; supply of qualified science/mathematics teachers; implications of increasing science/mathematics course requirements; dimensions of the science and engineering talent pool; and the match between student needs and available science/mathematics curricula at precollege and Cited by: The Crisis in Science Education: Science Tracer Bullets - Research Finding Aids from the Library of Congress, Science Reference Services.

Primary education in crisis pulls together the wealth of research on health, poverty, resources, language and teaching as factors in academic achievement in reading, writing and mathematics.

At the centre of the book is an analysis of the published studies that systematically document what teachers teach and fail to teach, and why it is that.

A description and critique of education reform in the United States since the s, focusing on the current condition of American schools and efforts to increase both educational opportunity and overall excellence. Authoritative and objective, Education in Crisis: A Reference Handbook is a critical look at the current state of the American school system, the conditions that have led many to.

I am today calling for urgent action to tackle the crisis in science education and to reverse the decline in the popularity of science, engineering and technology among pupils and students.

This paper examines (in separate sections) professional problems, proposed solutions, current trends, and needed directions related to science, mathematics, and technology education in the United States today. In the past decade, the national preoccupation has been on the crisis in secondary schools.

Lurking behind the intractable problem of low pass rates, the dysfunctional schools and the small number of higher grade mathematics and science graduates is the calamity in primary education.

But now, according to Science magazine, such ideas may be obsolete. Mathematics, too, is in a state of crisis in which the old verities are at least suspect, if not actually destroyed. And here then is the first crisis in mathematics: Since at least two out of the nine axioms of ZF are not logical propositions in the sense of logicism, it is fair to say that this school failed by about 20% in its effort to give mathematics a firm foundation.

Science, Technology and Global Problems documents the proceedings of the International Symposium on Trends and Perspectives in Development of Science and Technology and their Impact on the Solution of Contemporary Global Problems held in Tallinn, USSR on January.

This paper begins by discussing the observation that mathematics instruction at all levels is in a crisis of relevance. A sketch of the function and organization of the existing mathematics instruction is presented; the suggestion that instruction be built on a problem-orientation basis is considered; and the role and education of the teacher is discussed.

Interest in school science and technology (S&T) remains an important issue as it is linked to achievement and the intention to pursue studies or careers in S&T.

Around the world, a number of studies have shown that interest in S&T declines with school years. However, some divergences from the general trend have been demonstrated in certain contexts, sub-periods, or for closely related.The equation provides a systematic way to calculate the value of an option before it matures.
