abstract = {Summary: Descriptions of curricula as ``research-based" have been overused and underdeveloped. Two major conceptual tools support efforts of researchers and practitioners to collaborate on producing, evaluating, and implementing truly research-based curricula for early mathematics. The first is a set of learning trajectories that describe how children learn major topics in mathematics and how teachers can support that learning. These learning trajectories constitute the core of the second conceptual tool, a framework for developing curricula and teaching strategies. The chapter describes a framework comprising criteria and procedures for creating scientifically-based curricula using learning trajectories.},
