Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology. Revised Edition.
Barker, Patricia L.; And Others
This document presents the framework of standards in New York state for mathematics, science, and technology at elementary, intermediate, and commencement levels. This revised edition incorporates changes to the content standards and performance indicators based on extensive review by the public. As educational practice improves, these standards will continually be revised. New in this edition are samples of student work, along with teachers' comments on the work. The examples are intended to provide some ideas of tasks that support attainment of the performance standards. The seven standards are related to the following: understanding mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and engineering design; utilization of information systems; competence in applying mathematics in real-world settings; understanding and applying scientific concepts that pertain to the physical setting and living environment; competence in applying technical knowledge and skills to satisfy human and environmental needs; understanding the interconnectedness of mathematics, science, and technology; and the ability to apply the knowledge and thinking skills of mathematics, science, and technology to address real-life problems by making informed decisions. Samples of student work are included in order to foster dialogue about defining performance standards. (DDR)
