This document, an extensive revision of the original "Guidelines," was prepared by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)'s Commission on the Education of Teachers of Mathematics. It represents the current thought of the mathematics and mathematics education communities on the preparation of teachers of mathematics. Its developers sought and integrated input from teachers and professional associations representing all levels of mathematics instruction. This pamphlet is viewed as especially helpful to academic and professional groups responsible for teacher-education programs, accreditation, and certification processes. Individual chapter titles are: (1) Knowledge and Competence in Mathematics; (2) Humanistic and Behavioral Studies and Teaching and Learning Theory; (3) Laboratory and Clinical Experience and Practicum; (4) Competence and Utilization of Faculty and Faculty Involvement with Schools; (5) Admission to Basic Programs and Instructional Media Center; and (6) Evaluation, Review, and Long-Range Planning.
