Short Description: 

This brief offers insights from National Science Foundation-supported research for education leaders and policymakers who are broadening participation in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics (STEM). Many of these insights confirm knowledge that has been reported in research literature; however, some offer a different perspective on familiar challenges.

Advancing Reasoning Covariationally (ARC) Curriculum

The Advancing Reasoning Covariationally (ARC) curriculum is a curriculum for working pre-service and in-service teachers. ARC targets and develops quantitative and covariational reasoning as connecting threads to major secondary mathematics ideas, particularly in the area of algebra, precalculus, and calculus.

The DiALoG Science Argumentation Tool

DiALoG stands for Diagnosing the Argumentation Levels of Groups. It is designed for teachers to formatively assess the quality of evidence-based arguments and to guide the selection of instructional responses designed to Improve the quality of students’ arguments. DiALoG assesses two important aspects of group argumentation – how well students construct their own evidence-based arguments (the INTRApersonal) and how well students are able to reconcile differences with others to co-construct meaning (the INTERpersonal).

LessonSketch Modules for Teaching Argumentation and Proving

What can you infer from this example? and Who is Right? are two modules that address issues of mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge for teaching reasoning and proving.Each module intends to help users strengthen their content knowledge related to logical aspects of proving.

What can you infer from this example? and Who is Right? are two modules that address issues of mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge for teaching reasoning and proving.Each module intends to help users strengthen their content knowledge related to logical aspects of proving. It also addresses pedagogical aspects, such as students' conceptions of proving and pedagogical practices for supporting students' engagement with argumentation and proving.The modules can be used by prospective secondary teachers and by practicing teachers who seek to enhance their mathematical knowledge for teaching argumentation and proving.

Migrating NSF Proposal Preparation and Submission from FastLane to Research.gov

NSF is taking proactive steps to incrementally move the preparation and submission of all proposals from FastLane to Research.gov. On May 12, 2021, representatives from NSF's Division of Information Systems presented an overview of the Research.gov Proposal Submission System and the latest enhancements, including a demo site to explore the system before working on proposals. The session included a walk-through of how to quickly and easily create a proposal, upload proposal documents, manage senior personnel, and much more using NSF's user-friendly and intuitive Research.gov system.
