In order to gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of mathematics education on the secondary level, the mathematics education section of the Graduate School of Education and the Mathematics Department of Rutgers University began an extensive study project in the Spring of 1983. A pilot questionnaire was developed and distibuted to twenty-four New Jersey schools. It had several objectives. First, it sought to identify the topics in mathematics covered in the various courses offered in New Jersey high schools. Second, it sought to determine in which courses various specific mathematics concepts are presented. Finally, it sought to recognize the way in which New Jersey high schools accommodated to the varying levels of mathematical ability in their students.
