    Student Learning in Mathematics and Science U.S. fourth and eighth graders have made substantial gains in mathematics since Although eighth grade scores show a continuous upward trend, fourth grade scores leveled off during recent years. In science, eighth graders performed slightly better than their counterparts tested in The students who attended Railside, an urban school with a diverse student body, made more significant gains in mathematics achievement than the other two schools. At Railside, mathematics classes were non-tracked and teachers collaborated to provide all students with a rigorous curriculum that focused on conceptual ://

That high achievement in mathematics is a desired and growing demand for all citizens is a recent invention of mathematics education research. Between the years of reconstruction after the Second World War and the Cold War, school curricula were modernized with focus on the subject areas for the purpose of securing a To understand students’ achievement in mathematics or science, it helps to understand what courses they have taken.

In addition, STEM coursetaking in high school is predictive of earning a STEM degree in postsecondary education, with students who take more advanced mathematics and science in high school more likely to complete college with a STEM degree (Tyson et al.
