Abstract:Habituation textbooks were not aligned with standards; while textbooks derived from NSF curriculum projects were substantially aligned. Conclusions, implications, recommendations for practice and research included: only one Illinois college used an AMATYC standards aligned textbook; implementation of standards-based textbooks require faculty development; propose revising the Illinois Mathematics and Computer Articulation Guide to reflect standards; pedagogy is the clearest indicator of standards alignment; no textbook is completely aligned with AMATYC standards for content; need for creation of a community college foundations mathematics research agendum; development of standards-based assessments; national replication of study; and P-16 policy meta-analysis of mathematics education research.
