Helping Your Child Reach the New Standards in Mathematics, Science, and Technology: Core Curriculum Content Standards. A Guide for New Jersey Parents.
New Jersey Mathematics Coalition, New Brunswick.
In May 1996, the New Jersey State Board of Education adopted the Core Curriculum Content Standards. The standards define all concepts students are expected to achieve in seven content areas (including mathematics and science) at grades 4, 8, and 12. They also describe what all students must learn as they move from school to work and include the area of technology. This booklet aims to share the standards and the vision with parents. The changes that will occur in the classrooms are listed along with content information for mathematics, science, and technology curricula. Guides for parents to help children reach these goals are presented along with several activities related to the new standards. Resources for additional information are also listed. (ASK)
