Celebrating Our Heritage.
Gates, James D.
The paper presents a brief history, from the 1920s to the present, of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) on its 75th anniversary. Major points include: (1) significant progress has been made in the content, methods, and accessibility of mathematics classes over the past 75 years; (2) NCTM has shown strong leadership in responding to concerns about the school mathematics curriculum; (3) the NCTM Standards are not the end of the reform effort, but the beginning; and (4) NCTM needs to do a better job of interpreting the Standards for the public at large.
