How the NCEE Limits Middle School Math

Chapter 3 of How the NCEE Redefines K-12 Math

Includes the New York City Modifications

by Bill Quirk (E-Mail: wgquirk@wgquirk.com)

Here you will find a compact version of the NCEE  "Work Sample & Commentary" sets (WS&C sets) for middle school math.  We will also cover the New York City modifications to these sets.  In brief, the New York City authors provided different work samples for the first two sets and added work samples for two other sets.  The  NYC modifications improved the first set.
