UW-Madison's Eric Knuth and Ana Stephens recently co-authored a report for the March issue of Kappan Magazine headlined, “Build an early foundation for algebra success.” The report explores early algebra as an important gatekeeper to success in the secondary grades and almost every avenue in the job market and schooling. Knuth is a professor of mathematics education with the No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and Stephens is an associate researcher at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research.
