ab: Summary: A framework for a problem-driven mathematics curriculum is
proposed, grounded in the assumption that students learn mathematics
while engaged in complex problem-solving activity. The framework is
envisioned as a dynamic technologically-driven multi-dimensional
representation that can highlight the nature of the curriculum (e.g.,
revealing the relationship among modeling, conceptual, and procedural
knowledge), can be used for programmatic, classroom and individual
assessment, and can be easily revised to reflect ongoing changes in
disciplinary knowledge development and important applications of
mathematics. The discussion prompts ideas and questions for future
development of the envisioned software needed to enact such a
framework.
