Clune, William H.
Teachers College Record, v100 n1 p144-49 Fall 1998
Explores areas of agreement and disagreement in five articles on mathematics and science standards, highlighting active learning, teaching for understanding, and constructivism. The article notes that there is more than one right answer, but disagreement persists over applications, amateur problem solving, and the risk of junk math and science. Conclusions to the standards debate are presented. (SM)
