Brown, J. C. (1915). Curricula in Mathematics: A Comparison of Courses in the Countries Represented in the International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics. Bulletin, 1914, No. 45. Whole Number 619, United States Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior. The International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics created by the International Congress of Mathematics at Rome, Italy, in 1908, submitted a large body of reports to the congress at Cambridge, England, in 1912. Those for the United States have been published as bulletins for the Bureau of Education. The material in this bulletin shows that the types of school organization and curricula in mathematics of the leading nations of Europe have much more in common with each other than with those in the United States. All of the statements of fact in this bulletin are based upon reports of the international commission to the congress at Cambridge. Unless otherwise stated, it is to be understood that the European schools are for boys only. Relatively little as yet done in most of the European schools for the mathematical education of girls beyond the fundamentals of arithmetic. Following an introduction, the following contents are included: (1) General arrangement of the courses in typical schools of the various countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and United States; (2) The work in mathematics in the first school year; (3) The work in mathematics in the second school year; (4) The work in mathematics in the third school year; (5) The work in mathematics of the fourth school year; (6) The work in mathematics in the fifth school year; (7) The work in mathematics in the sixth school year; (8) The work in mathematics in the seventh school year; (9) The work in mathematics in the eighth school year; (10) The work in mathematics in the ninth school year; (11) The work in mathematics in the tenth school year; (12) The work in mathematics in the eleventh school year; (13) The work in mathematics in the twelfth school year; (14) Graphic representation of work in mathematics; (15) Certain important points of difference between the work in mathematics abroad and in the United States; and (16) Bibliography.

Archibald, Raymond Clare (1918). The Training of Teachers of Mathematics for the Secondary Schools of the Countries Represented in the International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics. Bulletin, 1917, No. 27, Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior. This bulletin is based upon reports to the International Commission on the Teaching of Mathematics concerning the development of the teacher of mathematics in the better secondary schools of different countries. For the most part, only those schools which are under the immediate direction of the Government have been considered. And even here discussion is limited to the best schools for boys and to the teachers in such schools. As a rule, the schools for girls are not as completely organized or of so high a standard. Included in this bulletin, when possible, are brief independent sketches of the educational conditions in the various countries, so that the readers may receive here in connected form condensed but definite accounts of the following phases of educational work in the country under discussion, in so far as they bear on the preparation of teachers of secondary mathematics: (1) the general educational scheme; (2) secondary schools and their relation to that scheme; (3) the mathematics taught in the secondary schools and the pupils to whom it is taught; (4) the inducements (such as salary, pensions; social position) to young men to take up secondary-school teaching as a profession; (5) the universities of the country, the courses of mathematics and allied subjects they offer, and the diplomas or certificates they confer. The countries profiled include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Roumania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States. The following are appended: (A) England: Cambridge local examinations, senior students; Oxford and Cambridge schools, examination board; University of London, matriculation examinations; (B) England: Entrance scholarships examination papers, Cambridge University; (C) France: Concours for admission to the Ecole Normale Superieure and for the Courses de licenses in 1913; (D) Agregation des sciences mathematiques; (E) Germany: Reifeprufungen; Lehramtsprufungen; (F) Japan; Examination questions. This bulletin was produced with the editorial cooperation of Smith, D. E.; Osgood, W. F.; and Young, J. W. A. An index is provided. (Individual chapters contain footnotes and tables.)
