This chapter provides an overview of curricular part of the chapters in this volume. The authors focus on various aspects of curricula from different countries (including China, India, Japan Russia, Singapore, and the United States) in order to examine how curriculum might be designed and delivered to help students develop algebraic habits of mind. The chapters that comprise this part highlight various curricular approaches, experiences, and practices that illustrate ways in which students in earlier grades can be better prepared to think algebraically.
