Pacific Standards for Excellence in Mathematics.
Pacific Region Educational Lab., Honolulu, HI.
This document represents collaborative efforts to define what is valued and necessary in mathematics education for Pacific region children. Underlying assumptions to these standards include constructivism, communication, problem solving, connections, time for learning, and challenge for all students. The majority of the document contains the standards which are grouped into three grade-level sections, K-4, 5-8, and 9-12, and are based largely on the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Curriculum and Evaluation Standards. Each standard is described and a sample activity is given. The epilogue discusses curriculum development, textbooks, instruction, alternative assessment, teacher in-service programs, preservice education, and technology. (MKR)
