Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics: Report of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Commission on Standards for School Mathematics.
Owens, John E.
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' Commission on Standards for School Mathematics was created in 1986 as a vehicle for coalescing current thinking of the profession on content, instructional methodology, and program and student evaluation of school mathematics for K-12. This report is intended as a guideline for development of curricula, textbooks, resource materials, and evaluation criteria. Each of the four sections provides from 11 to 14 standards, including a statement of mathematical content to be learned, expected student outcomes, and a discussion of purpose, emphasis, and appropriate instructional strategies. A list of recommended reading is included. Appended is a list of underlying assumptions about mathematics instruction for different grade levels. A summary of changes in content and emphasis in the study of algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and functions for grades 9 through 12 mathematics is included. (JD)
