Meeting National Goals for 2000 and Beyond in Mathematics Education. ERIC/SMEAC Mathematics Education Digest No. 1.
Hassell, James; Armistead, Joan
The reform of elementary and secondary school mathematics education in the United States has received renewed attention with the publication of several mathematics reform documents and the 1989 Education Summit sponsored by the nation's governors and President Bush. This digest lists documents and programs in four areas: (1) curriculum and testing, which focuses on the reform of mathematics education and on projects which have begun to answer this challenge including the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' framework for the needed curriculum changes and its widely accepted document "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics" and others; (2) teachers and teaching, which outlines programs for needed changes in teacher preparation; (3) school restructuring; and (4) Minority tracking. A list of 13 references is provided. (CW)
