Adding Value to the Mathematics and Science Partnership Evaluations


SUMMARY
 

Meyer, R.H. (1999). The effects of math and math-related courses in high school. In Susan E. Mayer, and Paul E. Peterson, (Eds.), Earning and learning: How schools matter. Washington, DC: Brookings Institution Press, pp. 169-204. 

Using the data from the High School and Beyond Study,, this chapter develops a statistical model of curriculum production that can be used to assess the effectiveness of mathematics and mathematics-related courses in high school. Meyer found that participation in advanced-track mathematics courses enhances mathematics proficiency for all students and some outside the realm of traditional mathematics  (such as chemistry or physics) also builds mathematics proficiency.
