STEM Education Data and Trends
http://www.nsf.gov/nsb/sei/edTool/
How well do students in your state perform on standardized
math tests?
How often do parents help their children with homework?
Am I doing enough to help my child as a parent?
Find answers to these and other questions be exploring the STEM
Education Data and Trends web tool. Based on the National
Science Board report Science and Engineering Indicators, this
interactive statistical Flash tool provides onestop access to
charts, graphs, key observations, and main findings about
science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education
from preschool through college, as well as related STEM
careers. Data sources of the NSB report include

Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten
Class (ECLSK)

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Trends in International Mathematics and Science
Study (TIMSS)

Program for International Student Assessment (PISA)

Advanced Placement Report to the Nation

Digest of Education Statistics

National Center for Education Statistics

U.S. Census Bureau

PoW taking place: math problemsolving moment of the week

"What I like about Vi's solution is that she not only explained
what she did, but also explained why she did each thing and
what she was thinking as she made her decisions. I especially
like that she explained...."

 Annie, commenting on the Geometry PoW's Latest Solution

Now taking place: math education conversation of the hour

"In general, by the way, our students think we're nuts! Let me
see...it's 9:00 at night, and I'm writing an email extolling
the virtues of not rounding before the end...they may have
something there:)"
