The University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics headed byMax Beberman began in 1951 and was the first major project associatedwiththe New Math era. Beberman's group published a series of high schoolmathtextbooks, and drew financial support from the Carnegie Corporation andthe U.S. Office of Education. In 1955, the College Entrance ExaminationBoard established a Commission on Mathematics to investigate the"mathematicsneeds of today's American youth." The Commission, consisting of highschoolteachers, math educators, and mathematicians, issued a report withrecommendationsfor a curriculum to better prepare students for college, and produced asample textbook for twelfth grade on probability and statistics.33The efforts of these and other early groups received little attentionuntilthe U.S.S.R launched , the first space satellite, in thefall of 1957. The American press treated as a majorhumiliation,and called attention to the low quality of math and science instructionin the public schools. Congress responded by passing the 1958 NationalDefense Education Act to increase the number of science, math, andforeignlanguage majors, and to contribute to school construction.
