Between 2002 and 2013, the Institute of Education Sciences (Institute) funded over 300 projects focused on math and science through the National Center for Education Research (NCER) and the National Center for Special Education Research (NCSER). Together, researchers funded by NCER and NCSER have developed or tested more than 215 instructional interventions (e.g., packaged curricula, intervention frameworks, and instructional approaches), 75 professional development programs, 165 educational technologies, and 65 assessments in math and science. NCER commissioned the development of this compendium with the intent to present information in a structured, accessible, and usable manner. This compendium organizes information on the NCER and NCSER projects into two main sections: Mathematics and Science. Within each section, projects are sorted into chapters based on content area, grade level, and intended outcome. The compendium also includes multiple appendices and an index to help readers locate specific types of information (e.g., projects that focus on English language learners, specific interventions). Section I: Mathematics Mathematics in Prekindergarten; Number and Quantity; Algebraic Thinking, Equations, and Algebra; Measurement, Data, Statistics, and Probability; Geometry; Fractions and Functions; Multi-Unit and Integrated Mathematics; Student Practice, Inquiry, and Reasoning in Mathematics; Student Perceptions, Motivations, Attitudes, and Anxiety about Mathematics; Mathematics in Postsecondary and Adult Education; Teacher Instruction, Pedagogy, and Professional; Development in Mathematics; Mathematics Assessment; Mathematics Policy Section II: Science Science in Prekindergarten; Physical Sciences; Life Sciences; Earth and Space Sciences; Multi-Unit and Integrated Science; Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science; Student Practice, Inquiry, and Reasoning; Student Perceptions, Motivations, Attitudes, and Anxiety about Science; Science in Postsecondary and Adult Education Settings; Teacher Instruction, Pedagogy, and Professional Development in Science; Science Assessment; Science Policy.
