Funding for the 2015 Curriculum Guide was provided to the MAA by the National Science Foundation (DUE-1228636) . Additional support from the Educational Advancement Foundation (EAF), established by Harry Lucas, is gratefully acknowledged . EAF support allowed the Steering Committee to meet and discuss its ideas with a thoughtful group of mathematicians at several of the annual Legacy of R . L . Moore conferences .
