Mathematics research papers offer a forum for all mathematics enthusiasts to exercise their mathematical experience, knowledge, and excitement. The research paper process characterizes the differentiation of instruction, as each student chooses their own topic and extends it as far as their motivation and wish to take them. The benefits and features of the research paper process provide a natural alignment with all eight Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. Writing Math Research Papers, 5th Edition, (PDF) serves both as a textbook for students and as a resource for administrators and instructors.
The Writing Math Research Papers program began at North Shore High School in 1991, and it received the 1997 Chevron Best Practices in Education Award as the premier high school math course in the United States. Author Robert Gerver’s articles on high school mathematics research programs were featured in the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics publication Developing Mathematically Promising Students, the NCTM’s 1999 Yearbook, Developing Mathematical Reasoning in Grades K – 12, and in the September 2017 issue of the Mathematics Teacher.
