Advancing naval and military technology created a need for mathematically skilled officers and led to the establishment of institutes such as the Royal Naval (1722) and Royal Military (1741) Academies in England, the Ecole Polytechnique (1794) in France, and West Point (1802) in America. Gradually the idea began to be accepted that education was a national responsibility and that an educated populace was a valuable asset, that education could be viewed as an investment, both personal and national.

The project made extensive use of European mathematicians as consultants, especially at the June conferences. The principal American consultants were Marshall H. Stone, Albert W. Tucker, Edgar R. Lorch, and Meyer Jordan. Other consultants were brought in from time to time: one list contains 39 names (SSMCIS, 1973, p. 23). Graduate students in the Department of Mathematical Education at Teachers Three projects 41 College served on the SSMCIS staff each year, helping Fehr with the administration of the project and serving as writers, consultants, teachers, and evaluators.

Students do drop out, however, and a school system usually needs to start at least two classes in Course 1 to make sure that enough students remain in the programme until twelfth grade so that there can be one class in Course 6. Most US school systems are organised so that students enter high school in either the ninth or tenth grade. Consequently, school systems must arrange for the programme to continue as students progress from middle or junior high school to high school. The problem is compounded when, as often happens, several schools feed into the same high school.
