In student centered math classes, students reason mathematically, communicate their mathematical thinking to other students, connect math concepts to their experiences, and solve complex, real world math problems rather than solely memorizing procedures. This research explores how districts implement student-centered instruction in math at the high school level. This research focuses on the outcomes of these reforms. The research also addresses how profiled districts train and support teachers and assess the outcomes of student-centered instruction.
