Math Education Reform
Interest in interdisciplinary mathematics is growing at both the school and the college level. The NCTM Standards make a strong case for connecting mathematics with other disciplines, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded many projects and curricula with strong interdisciplinary commitments, and mathematicians are more and more seeking employment in interdisciplinary areas.
