Mathematics in the 1980s: Recommendations by the Mathematics Community.
Seyfert, Warren C., Ed.; Pannwitt, Barbara, Ed.
Curriculum Report, v10 n4 May 1981
Presented, in abridged form, are recommendations found in "An Agenda for Action," for special note by secondary school administrators as they carry out their responsibilities for curriculum development and coordination. It is felt that school administrators and curriculum supervisors often have neither the time nor the opportunity to study and evaluate carefully the major proposals advanced for the improvement of instruction in all areas for which they are responsible. This presentation is designed to meet this problem with "An Agenda," by summarizing that paper in eight pages. "Agenda" was the product of a special National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) committee, called by the council to develop a detailed position paper to present recommendations for school mathematics in the '80s.
