This report contains the position statements and the Association of State Supervisors of Mathematics (ASSM) national action agenda for the following five spheres of influence: (1) "An Environment Conducive to Change"; (2) "K-12 School Mathematics Curriculum"; (3) "Adoption or Selection of Instructional Material"; (4) "Testing and Evaluation"; and (5) "Teacher Preparation and Certification." Also included are issues identified for consideration at future working conferences. The report closes with a commentary from the president of ASSM, Donald Chambers. The appendices to this report contain the individual state action items written by the ASSM members participating in this working conference and other pertinent information related to the session.
