Overview. The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) provides reliable and timely data on the mathematics and science achievement of U.S. students compared to that of students in other countries. TIMSS data have been collected from students at grades 4 . The report, Looking Inside the Classroom: A Study of K–12 Mathematics and Science Education in the United States, was prepared with support from the National Science Foundation under grant number REC These writings do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.

In November , the Department announced that it invested nearly $ million to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, including computer science, through discretionary and research grants in Fiscal Year , in accordance with President Trump's directive to foster expanded opportunities in these in-demand.

Researchers Find Systemic Problem in U.S. Mathematics and Science Education. When MSU Distinguished Professor William Schmidt and his colleagues released the various achievement results of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (timss) in the mids, the image of American students that emerged was stark. INTRODUCTION This book is about science literacy. Science for All Americans consists of a set of recommendations on what understandings and ways of thinking are essential for all citizens in a world shaped by science and technology. Below, we discuss briefly how these came about and describe their nature and organization.
