This book takes a fresh look at programs for advanced studies for high school students in the United States, with a particular focus on the Advanced Placement and the International Baccalaureate programs, and asks how advanced studies can be significantly improved in general. It also examines two of the core issues surrounding these programs: they can have a profound impact on other components of the education system and participation in the programs has become key to admission at selective institutions of higher education. By looking at what could enhance the quality of high school advanced study programs as well as what precedes and comes after these programs, this report provides teachers, parents, curriculum developers, administrators, college science and mathematics faculty, and the educational research community with a detailed assessment that can be used to guide change within advanced study programs.http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10129.html MATHEMATICS neither has gathered data to document that the test items on its ... 1998), the inferences that can accurately be drawn from the findings of these studies are ambiguous (see Chapter 10 of the ... they have responded to changes in the teaching of mathematics: AP by changing its syllabus and introducing technology; ... 495 496 http://www.nap.edu/catalog/10129.html CONTENT PANEL REPORT United States, the panel encourages.
