A Case Study of Kindergarten Mathematics Curricula

Project Overview

The purpose of this study is to compare two different mathematics curriculum models: traditional and standards-based. Traditional curricula, distributed by major publishing companies, are strongly influenced by market-based research. On the other hand, standards-based curricula reflect research on how students develop a conceptual understanding of mathematics. In particular, the focus will be on the delivery process of the two models and their influences on the teachers’ instructional practices at the Kindergarten level.
