The new NCTM Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (2000) were
presented to the public with great fanfare at the NCTM Annual Meeting in Chicago
in April of this year. The mood was celebratory, perhaps even more so than when
the 1989 Standards were presented. How will these new Principles and Standards
be accepted? What influence will they have? Are there messages here to which the
research community ought to be attending?
