National Mathematics Advisory Panel
 
The National Mathematics Advisory Panel has released a report outlining what needs to be done to help all students succeed in math. Experts on the panel appointed by President Bush in 2006 spent two years reviewing more than 16,000 research studies on the teaching and learning of math and gathering testimony from more than 200 individuals and 150 organizations. The panel's report offers a timeline of when students must master critical topics. The report says schools must teach number and math concepts early, help students believe they can improve their math skills and ensure that students fully comprehend algebra concepts by the time they graduate from high school.
