Biographical Note for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Committee on School Mathematics :

In December 1951, the Colleges of Education, Engineering and Liberal Arts and Sciences established the University of Illinois Committee on School Mathematics (UICSM) to investigate a new pedagogy for high school mathematics.1 Since then, UICSM has developed instructional materials for use in grades 7-12, for experimental use throughout the country.2

In 1971, the Mathematics Curriculum Development Project (UICSM) was first listed.3
