Facing the consequences. Using TIMSS for a closer look at U.S. Mathematics and Science Education. (English)
Kluwer, Dordrecht (ISBN 0-7923-5567-9). 235 p. (1999).
Presentation of a perspective on US mathematics and science education that is developed from data gathered as part of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). The authors believe this investigation shows how deceptive many often unquestioned assumptions about American education can be. Drawing upon many new analyses not previously reported and integrated these with previous analyses of TIMSS data, the authors develop and illustrate the argument that what happens to American students is the consequence of American beliefs that shape educational practice and the accretion of a myriad of educational choices made in mathematics and science education.
