Core Truths
Diane J. Briars, NCTM PresidentA little more than four years ago I was sitting with a small group of mathematics educators in the Peachtree Ridge High School auditorium in Suwanee, Georgia, for the release of the Common Core State Standards. Governors, state and district education leaders, business leaders, teacher union leaders, and a number of classroom teachers all described their strong support for CCSS and how having common, rigorous, world-class college- and career-ready standards would benefit both their students and the nation.

Mathematics in the Real World
MTMS BlogIn 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?
