A Vision of Science and Mathematics for All.
Peixotto, Kathleen M.
Many of those working to improve science and mathematics education have a vision where all students are successful and the celebration of success constantly presents the challenge to push the edge of the vision outward. The National Council of the Teachers of Mathematics established standards that some science educators are attempting to emulate. The vision of science and mathematics education represented in the standards is built on the themes of: (1) scientific and mathematical "habits of mind", (2) a constructivist approach to teaching and learning, (3) instructionally embedded assessments, and (4) science and mathematics for all. This paper discusses these themes and their implications for classrooms. (PR)
