dc.description.abstractPrincipals are responsible for ensuring the academic achievement of students in mathematics. Researchers have identified that principals who possess a combination of mathematical content knowledge and instructional leadership skills are most effective at increasing the academic achievement of students in mathematics. Yet, many principals do not have a background in mathematics. This capstone provides a review of literature related to the teaching and leadership practices that have been demonstrated to increase the academic achievement of students in mathematics. Additionally, recommendations are provided by which principals can increase their leadership, instructional, and content knowledge, thereby enhancing their ability to ensure the academic success of all students in mathematics.en_US
