Order Principles to Actions
There has been an overwhelming response to the release of Principles
to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All. Continuing its
tradition of mathematics education leadership, NCTM defines and describes the
principles and actions, including specific teaching practices, that are
essential for a high-quality mathematics education for all students. Order NCTM’s solution to
what will it take to turn the opportunity of the Common Core State Standards
into reality in every classroom, school, and district.

Mathematics in the Real World
In addition to teaching mathematics
for its own sake, we should also teach mathematics so that students learn to
value diversity, see mathematics in their lives and cultural backgrounds, and
analyze and critique social issues and injustices. These learn-see-analyze
purposes require connecting mathematics to real-world contexts, which is
emphasized in the Common Core’s fourth Standard for Mathematical Practice. What
does it look like to connect mathematics to real-world contexts?
