Issues Facing Mathematics in ATE


A working draft of resources and reports from an NSF-sponsored project intended to strengthen the role of mathematics in Advanced Technological Education (ATE) programs. Intended as a resource for ATE faculty and members of the mathematical community. Comments are welcome by e-mail to the project directors: Susan L. Forman or Lynn A. Steen.


Programs supported by NSF's Advanced Technological Education (ATE) initiative prepare students for careers in rapidly growing sectors of the economy that rely heavily on information technology. Mathematics plays a unique role in ATE projects: always essential but rarely central, always used but rarely noticed. As everyone's concern, mathematics easily becomes no one's concern. To ensure a proper place for mathematics in ATE programs, project directors need to confront many issues, including these:
