Summary

This bulletin contains: (1) a summary and conclusions of a study of mathematics curricula in Europe and Japan, and (2) a description of beginning efforts to evaluate the Secondary School Mathematics Curriculum Improvement Study (SSMCIS) project. Some of the conclusions of the European and Japanese study are: (1) the study of Euclidean synthetic geometry has been replaced by an axiomatic presentation of affine geometry, then transformations and vector geometry; (2) probability and statistics are becoming integrated into secondary school mathematics; (3) all countries have included calculus as a secondary school study; and (4) vector spaces and linear algebra are the newest comers to secondary instruction. Although in its sixth year, no results are yet available from evaluative efforts of the SSMCIS project. During 1970-71 achievement and attitude tests were constructed and administered. Data analysis, according to the author, are underway. (JG)
