Creating New Knowledge About Learning
Research is integral to TERC’s work—whether it’s scholarly inquiry in education research or a part of our materials development. Our scope of research reflects the breadth and depth of our approaches to some of the most persistent questions surrounding the teaching and learning of mathematics and science.
Use the menu on the right to browse by topic or grade level to find TERC programs that are creating new knowledge about science and math learning and teaching through research.
Links to research and impact studies related to the development and implementation of specific curricula, materials, programs, and services can be found on the pages describing the items. For example, the web site for TERC’s comprehensive K-5 math curriculum, Investigations in Number, Data, and Space, provides a research section that includes impact studies.
