Journey into a Standards-Based Mathematics Classroom
Brucker, Elizabeth L.
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v14 n5 p300-303 Dec 2008
A standards-based approach to mathematics involves using story problems to allow students to investigate a solution. This approach emphasizes an understanding of concepts and processes and assumes mastery of basic computation skills. This article will encourage teachers to continue teaching standards-based mathematics and to take advantage of available training to produce students who are better prepared in mathematics and who enjoy the process.
