**The
Show-Me Center**

The Show-Me Center, in partnership
with five NSF-sponsored middle grades curriculum development satellites
and their publishers, provides information and resources needed
to support selection and implementation of standards-based middle
grades mathematics curricula. These curricula showcase the vision
of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics as outlined
in their Standards documents. These documents call for major reform
of school mathematics to support the goal of improving mathematics
learning. Emphasis is on important mathematics that is explored
by students through active engagement.

**The
K-12 Mathematics Curriculum Center**

The K-12 Mathematics Curriculum Center, funded by the National
Science Foundation (NSF) and located at Education Development
Center (EDC) helps guide school districts as they build a shared
vision of the goals for a K-12 mathematics program. The Center
provides a variety of services and products to assist school districts
around the country as they select and implement standards-based
mathematics curricula. The project focuses on district needs related
to the selection and implementation of, and transitions among
three elementary, five middle, and five high school NSF-sponsored
mathematics curriculum programs. The K-12 Center offers resource
guides, discussion cases, a series of seminars, and other resources
to help facilitate discussion and decision-making among various
stakeholders within a district.
