Choices and Challenges.
Burrill, Gail
Teaching Children Mathematics, v4 n1 p58-63 Sep 1997
The president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) examines the definition of basic mathematics skills. One basic skill is understanding formulas that are used in real life. Recommends that educators use the message of NCTM's standards to make choices that will reinvent mathematics education. Challenges teachers to teach students to reason mathematically, improve communication, and build mathematical connections between real-life problems. (PVD)
