The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM) Curriculum and Evaluation Standards and Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics grew out of the Council's vision for developing a confident command of mathematics in all students. This booklet provides a brief overview of the NCTM Standards--the important components, the underlying beliefs, and the changes that need to be made in school mathematics. Also included are examples of successful mathematics programs that mesh with the NCTM Standards and a checklist for comparing mathematics activities in schools with the NCTM Standards. Components considered are: student learning, content and process, curriculum and instruction, assessment, and technology. Annotations including contact information are provided for: the Algebra Project, Cognitively Guided Instruction, College Preparatory Mathematics Program, Comprehensive School Mathematics Program, Core-Plus Mathematics Project, Michigan Mathematics Inservice Project, Middle Grades Mathematics Project, and The University of Chicago School Mathematics Project.
