Summary: The purpose of this research was to determine if Irish and U.K. mathematics teachers would support or deny what Indiana mathematics teachers would say are the most important skills necessary to successfully engage secondlevel students in maths. These European teachers would assess effective teaching strategies initially identified by some of Indiana's most effective maths teachers, providing a multinational perspective on effective teaching practices. It is hoped that this research would allow Irish, U.K. and U.S. maths teachers to learn from each other. Principals in these countries could then use the results to help all mathematics teachers improve and excel.
