Designing a High-School Calculus Curriculum – The Case of Israel

Keywords: Calculus; curriculum; Israel; high school; research influence

Abstract: In response to the call for this special issue, we describe the principles and process of designing a high school mathematics curriculum for the highest of three matriculation bound levels in Israel. While the principles and process were the same for all topics included in the curriculum, we focus on calculus and use examples from calculus for illustration. As part of the context in which the calculus component was developed, we present relevant research which the team used, explicitly or implicitly in the design. We also analyze how this research influenced various aspects from the design of entire units down to the formulation of tasks for the students. (Click here for article)
